|This is a ski slope at Alpine Lake. It is no longer an active slope but with a few inches of snow you could make it happen!|
2nd phase of the outdoor living area is to install a pizza oven and add more sqare footage to the space. That will begin this fall. Next spring we will be adding more space and a firepit.

We tried not to think about the stress that has been hounding our lives, nor about the work that needs to be completed in the next few weeks. We read, watched a couple of movies, hiked, enjoyed fireside chats, made breakfast lunch and dinner together (the nearest resturants and stores are 20 mins away); we simply rested, which isn't an easy thing to do when you have so much going on, but if you put your mind to it, it can be done.
|Sadie is an excellent trail dog. She runs ahead to scope out the area but doesn't get out of site from us. Here she has stopped to wait on us as she often does when she gets to far ahead.|
Of course, all to soon our little getaway came to an end. We drove home and stepped back into our regular lives. I must admit though, the getaway accomplished what we needed, R&R so we could "carry on".
Till next time
