iN tO tHe wOoDs

Over the Christmas holiday Hannah was able to come home on leave from the army so her mother wanted to take advantage of it and have an all girl trip up to their cabin. The cabin is located on the Wyoming side of the Uinta mountain range. You park your vehicle down below and load all your gear , water , gas, and lots of giggling girls onto a sleighs being towed by the snowmobiles and head up the mountain. What great fun we had has a family enjoying this beautiful scenery. But when it was time to come home the weather had changed, and that is one place you do not want it be stuck, they have these big gates on the interstate and when it gets bad they shut them leaving you stranded. Though it got a little hairy on the drive home with screaming babies, whining kids and slippery roads we took it slow stuck together and all arrived back home safely. Kari's little sister was the optimist in the group she kept insisting "will be fine- lets just go- well be fine" and we were.

Wow. You REALLY downplayed the HORRIFIC STORM OF 2009! I thought we had each others backs, I made it sound 10x worse! But...we DID have a good time. Im glad you went!

Did you name the storm and give it a category?

What a fun trip to be on. Girls time, drama, giggling, fun times and beautiful scenery!
