Iditarod team on a lake in Willow
We take all day to watch the Iditarod Race…we make a campfire on a lake in Willow and just enjoy the time.

The one who looks cold was home from Tucson for Christmas Break

Moose are all over in the winter.

I can think of lots of other reasons we like winter. Skiing, Snowshoeing, Ptarmigan hunting, Snomachining, Sledding, Skating, and on and on…
