I've somehow lost the ability to sleep in, but waking up alarm-free around 7 on Monday felt pretty good. Coffee and tea, big oatmeal-and-walnuts gluten-free dairy-free pancake breakfast for the two of us, big kibble breakfast for Rue, and we were out the door for a family backcountry ski outing.
|Like just about any dog, Rue loves winter and powder snow. As do we.|
Our vet has declared that Rue is too young to porpoise along with us while we make powder turns (gotta let those joints finish developing,) so we've come up with an alternative...
This was also Erica's inaugural day on alpine touring ski gear. As expected, she loved it and is scheming ways for us to get her a new setup for BC touring. So much easier on her back!
And our new coating of powder was pretty freaking unbelievable.
