We were going to have a relaxing day but decided to take a hike to see if we could see some snow. We did and we were, actually, quite excited. (Probably hard to believe for friends and family who are just ending pretty brutal winter months!) While hiking we came across wood carvings in trees- a shovel, a butterfly, edelweiss, a saw and a pinecone. We were surprised that people leave them alone. We followed the clearest, cleanest stream we’ve ever seen. I walked back while Jesse and kids kept going. When they got back, they were so excited about a beaver type animal they saw, crocuses and guys doing a running/jumping sport on the side of the mountain onto the snow. Pretty cool stuff in an unbelievably beautiful, serene part of the world!
