This first winter on the ranch has taught me a lot about the harsh realities of what winter is like on the high desert: bitter cold mornings, lambing in the winter, and trying not to slide off the road after the ice has frozen and there is no gravel. Despite all the normal occurrences of winter it is a fun time of year as long as there is snow and ice! It is such a blast having younger brothers who still love to sled and ice skate! So, with such great conditions we were able to do both this year, old fashion style. The boys made sleds to go sledding with and we went skating on a frozen part of the creek. Well, the pictures describe it best.
