Despite not being the blue bird day the weatherman said it would be, it was still beautiful on top of the snow covered mountain. I took a few practice runs down an easy trail a few times before trying to keep up w/ my friends. The continued to smoke me the rest of the day, but I was grateful for their patience & support as they pushed my limits. I hope for a few more chanced to get out on the slopes again before spring. *Mom stop reading here* Maybe even try my hand at some back country runs since that is what everyone out here seems to love so much.

After a few hours of driving we finally made it to the park & almost hit three moose w/ my car about a mile from the entrance.
The scenery was absolutely stunning. We only had about 2 hours left of sunlight, so after taking plenty of pictures of the first three moose we continued down the Going to the Sun Road.
Then another moose jumped out in front of my car! He was huge. This was about the point I was screaming "Do NOT hit my car you cussing moose!"
Going to the Sun Road is only open & plowed for the first 6 miles. We were able to go as far as Rising Sun campground before the snow plow (or lack thereof) stopped us in our tracks.
So we took off on foot for a bit to watch the sun set behind the mountains.

|Notice the frozen drool.|
As the sun started to set we decided to get serious about our tree search & ended up picking one that we had liked early in our adventure.
|We were trying to take a "family" photo. Bosco started playing w/ a stick in the first attempt, & Lima "attacked" the camera in the second attempt. We gave up.|

Although somewhat pretty, it was very anticlimactic. I guess I've been spoiled by Rockefellar.
