My husband and I usually take a winter vacation this time of year. This year, it isn’t going to work out, but that doesn’t stop me from checking out the webcams in West Yellowstone and wishing I was there. We love the snow. Our idea of a great vacation involves minus zero weather, snowmobiles, boots and skis.
I definitely do not fall into the “athlete” category, so most folks are very surprised when they find out that we do such active vacations.
I learned to love snowmobiling and skiing after I met my husband. And West Yellowstone is a great place to snowmobile. Miles and miles of trails and tons of deep snow. And animals. And temperatures so cold, you have to be careful to breathe through your nose so as not to freeze your lungs.
And when you get out there and look up into the night sky and see the millions of stars that you never can see under Atlanta skies, well that bit of cold weather just doesn’t seem to bother you in the slightest anymore.
