It was our first time back to our favorite horse riding spot since last fall.
It has been too long.
Snow Basin is up, up, up in the mountains and it takes longer for the snow to melt up, up, up there than it does down, down, down here.
Oh Snow Basin, how we have missed thee!
We have missed the sweet music of the mountains. The birds chirping above us, the sound of the river rushing at our feet, the sound of the baby oohing at all the majesty, the sound of the horses breath as they trot, the sound of the clip clop of the horses hooves, the sound of all the little bugs buzzing around.
We have missed the scenic vistas and wonderful hiking trails.
We have missed dipping our toes in the crisp water of the river.
We have missed eating our lunch in the shade of the twinkling leaves.
We have missed spending the afternoon with Grandpa and Lisa and Jessica and Jo.
We missed the wriggly fuzzy caterpillars and the purple butterflies.
When we got home and got the car unloaded we were ready for a nice cool treat. I made the kids a super tasty chocolate slushie.
