Good afternoon and happy holidays! We're back after a short winter break blogging hiatus.  Unfortunately, we have not had much snow out in Utah, but we've still been having fun out on the hill!  We had a couple epic day of shooting ski pictures this week. We will be sure to share some in the coming weeks.  We had an off day from skiing today, but here are some pictures from a short hike up the Alta summer road today.  Pray for snow!
