The holiday season seemed to come and go like a freight train this year. Maybe it was a mixture of, year one holiday rush with my business, traveling and getting the flu. That all seems like forever ago now.
Recently we had our first "out of state" guest come and visit the ranch. Our dear friend Stephanie ( lovingly referred to as The Dost). As always I had some yummy food waiting, we went out and fed carrots to the critters and checked out the Eagles nest in the back field before heading into North Cascades National Park.
We love visiting the park at different times and experiencing the seasons. This was our first trip in the middle of winter, so we weren't sure what to expect.
In the spring the giant waterfalls are flowing and the park is bustling with tourists and hikers. This time it was very quiet. All the waterfalls were frozen, creating stunning icicles the size of me! Its like stepping into a winter wonderland.
As we summited, looking over Diablo Lake, I was reminded of how lucky we are to call this beautiful place home. It was so nice to share the park ( still one of my favorites) with Steph during her visit.
