I finally found some snow today!!!
So disappointed that everyone has snow and down here in Southern Utah is nothing.
My annual tradition is to go on a long hike to seek solitude. My husband passed away on Thanksgiving nine years ago, so I do not celebrate at all. Instead I seek solitude and enjoy mother nature.
This year's hike was an amazing experience. Most of the time I couldn't see much because I hiked in the clouds and fog. Every 5-10 minutes the fog lifted and I was rewarded with nice views. Not a bad way to spend Thanksgiving.

Finally had a reason to get out the snowshoes. Strapped them on the backpack and headed out on the local trail.

Lots of drifts on the saddle and on top.
That’s where the snow show shoes went on.

Views were not all that great but felt about right considering it was snowing.

Caught a bunch of them members at once...

@slc_dan, @NateGeesaman, @Michael, Beck, Heike, Lacy, Skylar, Miya, Cassiopea and Underscore's two little ones in packs at Nate's Tree in upper Sand Creek near the BMT during the German's recent visit. Sure is nice to see international southern Utah lovers that are members.

Now that you mention it, I might have commented on her name before...or maybe I just thought of it haha. I am forgetting things...lol

This begs the question.. who was named after whom? Miya is probably 35 years old or so, but that is in dog years. So you probably predate her. Maybe she was named after you. What is the origin of this unusual human (and dog) name? Sorry if it is too private to pry... no problem to decline. ;)

Maybe Underscore, @slc_dan, for our other, four-legged beautiful lady. could weigh in on the name origin...

We've always spelled it Mya, but if @Artemus wants to spell it wrong he is entitled to do so.

We like short names for dogs, and it sounded right when we got her 9 years ago. 42 in doggy years, she's getting old, but still acts like a puppy.

Oh haha yes that makes more sense! That is how most Mya's are spelled.

My mom picked out my name when she was 13 haha I am named after an old sci fi show and Miya was a half human and half alien. My dad agreed to the name because he is Japanese and Buddhist and he told people that I was named after Buddha's mom, Queen Maya LOL, but that isn't even Japanese Buddha, it is Tibetan Buddha. Basically, my mom just wanted to be difficult with the spelling.

And you let me go wrong all this time? That post from the Winds was 2014 ! How many other things do I have wrong in our relationship @slc_dan ?

Sorry, Mya.

Ofcourse we all stopped for pie and ice cream on a warm, sunny afternoon. Ok since we hiked about 26 miles in two days.

We also met @regehr and his family in Hanksville for a beer! No photos...
Lots of stuff happened in between, but here’s a couple from yesterday in Sedona. Trails are all dry, but after all the rain Wednesday night, there’s water everywhere. The fragrance after the rain is amazing! Here is Rick

Today we will do our favorite hike here, the creek will be gushing with water and we need to cross it ten times or so today. The reflections were amazing yesterday afternoon:

Buttermilk Ski Area yesterday - the little one started skiing at age 3, is now 5 and doing intermediate runs. She wants to be on ski patrol ever since one of them gave her a sticker for her helmet, though she really doesn't know what they do. :) (And the stuffed animal looking thing on the opposite chair is a stuffed bear that was riding that day.)
