The scenery in your photo's awes me, I would love to see it for real. Just gorgeous!
I have been skiing once, in the alpine region of Victoria, Australia. But even then it was maybe -3*C at the coldest, and they were having to spray man made snow onto the slopes to top them up.
Your beautiful, fluffy, deep snow is incredible
The snow is truly gorgeous, until it starts melting or gets frosted, or too slippery. Winter trail rides are nonetheless among my favourite riding activities, and Snickers loves that just as much as playing in the snow - he's always extra spunky and full of energy during the colder seasons.
Sometimes we go on trail walks at liberty. This time, I had put on the halter at first, but I ended up just tying the rope around his neck and not using it. Sometimes we are both on one wave, sometimes Snickers says he's got better plans on his mind, but how could we otherwise know who leads whom, and then talk it over later?
When there are no ropes to hold on and nobody can be made to do anything, the true connection shows...
Will you come to me? The answer is not always positive, and then the conversation may go on - why so. How can we learn to understand each other better.
First, one crosses the creek...
I invite you, will you come to me?
...then the other. And crossing the creek is something that applies to everything we do together with someone. We cannot expect togetherness if we don't do the crossing together and if we don't wait for each other to do it when it really feels like it. When we are ready.
