A Winter Week
It's been the week that winter arrived with a vengeance. Shyla saw it coming over her shoulder.
After it arrived, we spent the rest of the week trying to cope with, and maybe even enjoy, the snow!
Finally, today, I'd managed to pack down about 1.5 miles of trail enough that I could ride my fatbike! I had to stay exactly in the center of the packed path or I'd come to a sudden halt in the deep snow along the sides of the trail.
Similarly, every now and then, Shyla would come to a halt in the deep snow too! Can you imagine how much energy it takes for her to go through that snow? It astounds me.
But after a brief rest, Shyla always got going again. I will never get tired of watching her romp in the snow.
Now that I have a little bit of trail that I can ride on my fatbike, it's SNOWING again! I feel a bit like Sisyphus. I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, it won't snow too much so I can ride again tomorrow!
