Life Before Death

I do solemnly swear this will be the last blog post showing us having fun in the snow. This is, after all, a gardening blog. But snow or no... ya gotta love that view.

From the top of Iron Canyon, you can see for miles and miles.

Higher and higher we must go in order to find that really good snow... This week's Friday Afternoon Club adventure took us to the tippy top of Iron Canyon.

Along one of the steepest trails we've ever snowshoed.

Through a quiet forest of Quaking Aspens.

To the lookout. Rather, the look down. Upon Park City Mountain Ski Resort. Most folks reach this elevation by taking a chairlift so we were quite proud of ourselves for snowshoeing all the way up here.

As we huffed and puffed our way to the top, KC offered up 1 really terrific quote: "I believe in Life BEFORE death," she says.

"So say we all."

Once we reached the top we discovered we were missing one crucial piece of equipment. The other hikers brought sleds so they could fly all the way back down the mountain!

I hope you mean for this year. I love to re-live our snowshoe adventures with your vivid and clever accounts.
