New Year's Fun and New Bike!

We greeted 2015 with a sunrise snow bike ride. Shyla gazed over our world with clear eyes. Trying to be out in the mountains for sunrise on New Year's Day has become a tradition for Shyla and me.
Then, after the sun rose, we got silly. Shyla imitated the flying nun!
And, she threw snow into the air like the fake glitter that people throw at midnight on New Year's.
We had a fabulous ride. My new snow bike's performance is jaw-dropping. It is so good at floating through loose powder while staying stable no matter what it encounters. I'll write more about it later but here's a photo of my beautiful Meriwether snow bike. I think that this frame builder has the best design for snow bikes nailed. And I am so lucky to be riding one!
Happy New Year!
