Costa Rica Anyone?

We are just home from a visit with dear friends in Bozeman Montana.  They raised their daughters in Costa Rica, and still have their house there.  They rent it out to visitors, so I thought I would share the link.  All reports say it is amazing.  I am hoping we can get down there in the near future! Check it out!

Fall turns to winter

Summer flew by and there is snow on the ground again!  We have been so lucky with our weather these last 6 months.  The summer was lovely, with enough showers to keep things green into August! We had an incredibly long and temperate Fall that lasted into November--unheard of here in the Tetons.  I am ready for snow now.  Easy for me to say, as Lyle has gotten the wood split and stacked by the back of the cabin. Here are a couple pictures from the Fall.

 These last two are by Lexi!

Yesterday 5 bison were herded off the highway and down Antelope Flats by two plow trucks and a park ranger.  They must have been hoping to get to the Elk Refuge from up North.  We are a dead end this time of year, and the snow banks are tall.  So far they haven't been willing to attempt to plow a trail east.  They like how nicely Lyle keeps our driveways and paths! I got to watch them from the Log Cabin kitchen window while cooking this afternoon.  It makes me feel like Summer!  But we have quite a while yet.

Winter in Moose

Just a couple pictures from the last month or so.  We have had pretty consistent snow since the New Year began.   It got deep enough that I began skiing and snowshoeing in the creek, rather than the flats.  All that changed this morning.  We had a icky wet week, with above freezing temps.  But last night it dropped to 25 and the blank fields of snow are now crusted and easy to ski (or run if you are Sunshine). Lyle is busy moving snow and getting ready to put new wood floors down in the living area of the West Cabin.  The basement in the Log Cabin is nearing the painting stage!

I did shovel this window out last week, and the roof slid the next day and we were buried again.  Luckily this is the worst spot, the rest of the windows are still mostly clear. The best way to enjoy the views is from a set of skis or snowshoes, so I won't worry too much about my bedroom view.
