more good times in jackson!

We’re at the bottom of the tram in Teton Village.  It’s chilly, low forties probably.  We can see it’s snowing at the top, or maybe it’s just been snowing.  It’ll be a little cold up there, so we’re sort of bundled.  We’re so excited to see the view from the tip top of a mountain and if there’s a little bit of snow for the two from west Africa to play in, great!DSC_0032

Riding up we can see down into the green valley below.  Gorgeous!
DSC_0037We get to the top and cannot see a thing.  Visibility is about twenty feet and there’s several feet of snow, on the way to having another foot.  People are getting off the tram to ski and ride out of bounds.  Fresh powder, I could resist.  It was a white out.  We had a blast!  K and F had never seen so much snow.  We weren’t really prepared, but we had a few snowball fights, made angels and a teeny tiny snowman.  The wind was blowing razor like bits of snow at our exposed faces (and my partially exposed legs) at a painful 27 miles per hour.  We had to run back inside to thaw out a little every five or so minutes.  Then it was back into the 8 degree playground.DSC_0045

We couldn’t see we were at the top of a mountain and that green valley below seemed imagined, but what fun!  DSC_0108



Auntie B is trying to take a family portrait, but it’s way too painful to look in her direction.DSC_0074
Warming up for another round of trudging through “talller than us are” snow and ice skating for very brief moments before “slicking” down on our bums and giggling and giggling.

What an incredible view from way up here on the top of the world here in the Tetons.  Isn’t it pretty?!?IMG_2925

Heading back to the tram to return to a little more normal end of May.  I wasn’t colder trekking to Mount Everest base camp a few Octobers ago.  Brrrr!
