During the Christmas holidays, we had several nice ski tours. One was in the Tabby Mountain Wilderness Management Area, where we often ride in spring and fall.
Our son and Daisy were ready to go. We saw plenty of elk and deer tracks, so Daisy's nose was in high gear right away.
The fresh, powdery snow made a swishing sound as we skied. We followed the outline of a two-track, and much of it was untouched,
with lovely views of mountains and sky.

One thing I regret about living in my climate is that we can't hardly ever cross-country ski. It looks like you had some beautiful weather for it -- that blue sky and mountains are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
What a great workout in such beautiful scenery!ReplyDelete
That last picture is absolutely gorgeous. I love the mountains and the blue sky. You must have enjoyed the outing as much as Daisy did.ReplyDelete
What a great way to spend a day. It looks like the weather was perfect. Fun to have Daisy and son along for company. I'm jealous. That's what I'd be doing today if I'd been able to get an earlier start. Maybe tomorrow...ReplyDelete
beautiful place to ski....ReplyDelete
Beautiful shot of ski area. There could not be another nice way to spend the day in winter.ReplyDelete
I love the way you get out and go no matter whether on hores back, ski or on foot. I haven't seen you bike yet.ReplyDelete
Lovely winter shots. Gorgeous with that blue sky.ReplyDelete
The woods are so open to see through. We have dense black spruce so you can see far. I'm beginning to think you are the only ones who get out in the wilderness of Utah! Just beautiful.ReplyDelete
I have never skied, Janie, but I always wanted to (just like I wanted to fly an airplane). Maybe in another lifetime.... Sigh!!!ReplyDelete
Looks like you all got some great exercise and saw some beautiful scenery along the way. Gorgeous!!!
Looks like a fun day and something I always wanted to try. Great photos.ReplyDelete
The visibility looks awesome so I can imagine the views were spectacular with that BLUE sky.ReplyDelete
Fantastic captures, Janie, as always! And it does look as though you all had a great time. I bet Daisy was in hog heaven! Love those blue skies to go with the snow!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week!
Perhaps this is what I need to get me to the train station in the morning!ReplyDelete
What a day for skiing...glorious!ReplyDelete
Absolutely delightful. I wish I could try cross country skiing someday.ReplyDelete
looks like fun and a beautiful area!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful life you have - horseback riding half the year and skiing the rest! Awesome!!!ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous country no matter what time of year you share with us.ReplyDelete
beautiful country janie...i probably would be on the motorized vehicle enjoying it rather than skiing :)ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing your special adventure with us.
have a fab week.
Beautiful photos and I see you are keeping your word on staying motivated :-)ReplyDelete
Your outdoor life is heaven bound Janie regardless of the season. Such a spectacle of beauty. Haven't tried skiing yet.ReplyDelete
more magical winter wonderland shots - the world looks so pristine..ReplyDelete
Peaceful and quite beautiful Janie. I'm wondering if the Tabby Mts are near SLC?ReplyDelete
Looks like a great day for a ski. I haven't strapped mine on yet this winter.ReplyDelete
that is a beautiful worldReplyDelete
It is so beautiful your's world!!!I love it!!!ReplyDelete
There's nothing quite so magical as sun and snow!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful sunny day! Nice photos!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your snowy trek on a sunny day ... and a 'zoned out' Daisy in your 'z' post too ;-)ReplyDelete
Hugs and blessings,
Nice! Glad you got out for a tour. I often fall into an aerobic skiing rhythm, so it's to ski with others who slow down and appreciate the day.ReplyDelete
