We had a beautiful winter day here in Idaho so Brian, Art, Ruby and I opted for a mellow hike around Jughandle Mountain Ranch. Notice Brian in short sleeves!
Snow conditions on the groomed trails were not great for skiing and Ruby was confused why we were moving slower than normal.
After a fair amount of climbing, we had great views of the valley.
Ruby insisted on a viewpoint photo shoot.
Back down we go! Anytime we short cut off the groomed trails, the snow was quite punchy and soft. Ruby knows to walk in the snowshoe tracks to prevent punching through to her chest.
The snow cover this year is quite thin….getting bare patches already. We are hoping for a wet Spring!
