My honey turned 26! It was an especially good birthday this year. To celebrate, we went on a yurt trip with Jake & Melissa Garrett. If you are like me, you probably have no idea what a yurt is. It's basically
like a canvas igloo. The one we reserved a night in was in the middle of nowhere and we had to ski in.
We started off by driving to Pocatello, Idaho. We got all strapped up to our Alpine touring skis and got
our packs on right at about dusk and started on our way.
The trail was AMAZING! It snowed the entire hike in. The woods around were so wildly beautiful
and quiet. And there were fresh animal tracks all around us the entire way. We had to use a GPS to find the yurt.
Let me tell you what a welcome site the Yurt was---all nestled in the middle of the forest, blanketed
in snow--after 6 hours of uphill hiking.
The men got a fire started while Melissa and I got the beds ready. We even melted snow to cook dinner
with! The yurt was so warm all night.
After we had eaten and packed up in the morning, we got our skis and packs on again and skied out!
Even though it was super challenging and a little scary at times, it is by far the funnest trip
we have done in a long time. We just can't wait to go back again!
We returned to Lance's parent's house to pick Crew up only to find a surprise birthday party
for Lance. I didn't get a picture of the group but thanks to all those who came!
I love him so very much.
We celebrated again with my family on Sunday.
HAPPY 26TH BABY!
