More Fun in the Snow

This weekend was great. First, on Saturday we made a new friend and went snowshoeing. Our new friend is a German Wirehair Pointer named Raina. She is still a rambunctious little puppy, but she was fun to play with.

We didn't go as far this time. Instead, we went just outside of Boise. We were on an old logging road just past the treeline in the Boise National Forest. Here is what Boise looks like from the trail:

By the time we finished snowshoeing, it was starting to snow. The road at the trailhead is really nasty. It is the only road up to a ski resort outside of Boise (Bogus Basin). Right after we left, there was a nasty car accident that shut the road down for a long time. Fortunately, we made it off the hill no problem.

The next morning it was still snowing, so our humans took us to our favorite park. It has lots of trails through the hills, and we can run free. We had a great time!

Yes, it was a great weekend!

Oh wow, those pics are just gorgeous. You two live in a lovely area. There is so much snow there and it looks very fluffy. Do your pinkies ski?? Ours do but they have to travel long distances to do so.

We have never seen snow, it is too hot here for snow. But gee it looks like fun.
