    Yeah But, You are riding this week and it was -5 yesterday here.
    I kinda slow down on the horse rides for a couple of months, so I can enjoy the winter sports or at least stay warm.

    In fact Bryce Canyon yesterday was -30. That's why I don't make any trips down there till May.

    So I have to look at summer pictures to get me through the winter

    Gorgeous!!! It was cold and rainy here today - OMG so sick of the rain. I went out to check on my horses and they were at the back of their 3.5 acre paddock. LOL They came RUNNING to me. That was a first for these two. I think they missed me. I had a handful of treats for them. They were fine with their winter fuzzies going on but I was a little cold. It was 38 degrees with a real feel of 29 degrees and 93% humidity. Nasty cold to the bones. We have already had 8" of rain here this month. OMG we don't need anymore!!!

    It always cracks me up, how other areas of the country add modifiers to their weather reports. Real Feel, Wind Chill, Heat Index. Here when the weather man gives the weather. That's what it is, they don't try to make it sound worse than it is with modifiers.

    -5F is cold and 100F is hot regardless of the humidity.

    My horses are really fuzzy. They live outsdoors, no blankets. I can imagine what spring will bring with flying hair when they shed out. Yesterday, they were kicking up their heels and jumping around as they saw me coming around the building.

    Painted Horse -- I am SO jealous looking at your pictures! Hoping to go out west soon. I'm in Wisconsin we have "hilly" areas, but no scenery like that. Finishing up college in the next few years and cannot wait to really get out and trail ride. Only so much to see here in Wisconsin. Love the pictures keep them coming so I can daydream. Would just love to get out there someday, if only that was in my backyard I'd probably never come back, LOL.

    QOS -- I saw your pictures of the flooded trail. I cannot believe you have that much rain. Snow has finally stopped here, we had an unheard of 55F temperature the other day and we rode the whole day. Got a little sloppy for one day now we're back to temps close to 0. I'd rather have warmer muddier weather. Cannot stand the 0 and below zero temps!

    Annanoel, the rain has just been unreal. Last year we had so much rain but the year before it was a drought and that is bad too. It is just been too much too close together and the ground is just sodden with so much water there isn't any place to put it but on top now. Ugh. What a mushy mess. We are going riding hopefully Saturday around noonish after I deliver a wedding cake. Hope it is at least not raining.

    My little sister manages the ski instruction at Deere Valley. She's been there for 18 years, and I haven't taken one chance to go skiing there!

    I used to ski, but my wife doesn't. Cold feet, you know. I haven't been skiing in so long, I might not remember how.

    Deer Valley makes a point of ALWAYS being the most expensive ski pass in America. Their claim to fame. If I can't find any deals or freebies, I don't ski deer valley. It's a nice resort and really caters to the upper class. Has incredible food in it restaurants and snake bars. But I can't afford to hob nob with the Rich and Famous.

    Snow Basin on the other hand, Has excellent food also, And reasonable life passes and rarely has any lines and exceptional skiing. I worked the Olympic Down Hill races in 2002 at Snow Basin. Spent 14 days straight riding up the chairlifts at 5:00 am to get the mountain ready for the races. A great experience.

    Painted *bows down* you are the man! There is no way on earth I could ride those cliffs. *bows down*

    A while back I had a panic attack when we were riding along a 200 ft. Cliff. The trail was a good 10/15 feet away, it was in the woods so soft footing, I was on a greenie and not about to take a chance! Then there was the wind, gusting 30/40 mph... Umm I walked it.

    *bows down again!*

    Absolutely breathtaking photos!

    Notice my position vs my friends

    But I'm not afraid of heights, So it doesn't bother me.
    If you live in the mountains, You get used to being on top of something.

    Enjoying the scenery.
