Changing Seasons

Well after two weeks of unseasonably warm weather, Utah finally reminded us it was winter. Yesterday E and I wanted to get out of the house, and do something for the long weekend. We drove up to the Uinta Mountains (about 90 minutes away) and went snowshoeing. This was after a huge discussion on if we should go snowshoeing, because everything felt so springy. E wanted to go biking, or hiking, and I wanted to snowshoe (we finally decided to snowshoe). Anyway, on the trial we were both so warm we didn’t wear hats, gloves, coats, etc. We both hiked in our T-shirts! I couldn’t believe how little snow was there, and how quickly it was melting.

I looked out my window yesterday at our beautiful silver maple. The buds were coming out, and it was ready to start spring! E and I commented that this warm weather can’t be good for our snow pack, yet we were loving it!

This morning I woke up late (no work on President’s Day!) and peaked out the window. Utah reminded us, and our tree, that is still in fact winter. I snapped these photos out of the reading nook, because I mentioned in my previous post that the reader (or the napper) can watch the changing seasons, and this is a perfect example.

  1. Wow, spring is just around the corner! I am so excited to see some of the first signs of spring considering all the snow that we got. I am ready for the beautiful spring weather!
