big mountain

the local ski mountain is called “big mountain.” i had wanted to snowshoe up it last year and didn’t get a chance so i made it happen today. it was fun, but it was also very up with no flat areas (guess i shouldn’t have been surprised – we were going straight up a ski slope!). unfortunately once we got to the top it was completely foggy with no view. normally you can see flathead lake and glacier national park. guess i’ll have to go again. maybe i’ll take a lift up next time.

these were the signs we were told to follow. we laughed every time we saw a sign because did they really need to remind us that we were going uphill?! my body felt every (upmountain) step.

one of many breaks while going "upmountain."
