Champagne and S'mores End New Year's Day Snowshoeing Fun
We had great roads and arrived to find only a few cars in the parking lot. Katie was going to keep a fire going for us as she could not do the trail with us because of a broken toe injury.
We decided to go the opposite route that we usually do because we thought it would be easier. We were wrong, it was just as much of an incline. The trail was very nice, packed and not many rocks or tree roots. As we enjoyed the blue bird day with not much wind, we took a short break at the warming hut and headed back to the parking lot. There were many more cars and some enjoying a picnic on the snow with little children.
Katie had just the right amount of coals to roast marshmallows for S’mores. Everyone enjoyed a long forgotten treat of our youth and toasted with Champagne to the New Year. We headed back to town and we’re glad to spend time with friends and to enjoy Montana in the winter.
Note: on the way home, we were stopped due to a car accident, a really bad one with an almost unrecognizable vehicle lying among the trees. We later heard it was a fatal accident that happened the day before only discovered at 11 a.m. on New Year's Day.
