Nachos and snowshoeing....

I LOVE nachos!  Do you think I'll find me some good nachos in Arizona?  I hope so.
The comida del día (meal of the day) was homemade nachos made with home-baked corn tortilla chips.  After the proper amount of rest required before exercising, I took my first-of-the-year snowshoe walk.  It was the perfect afternoon for it too.  Sunny, warm, light breeze, and 34 degrees.  The snow in many places was still quite powdery which made me sink in more, but generally, it was good shoeing. 

 
It's either Big Foot or the Gumbo Lily out traipsing in the snow!

It's a snowshoe-er for sure!
Why I didn't wear my wool pants for this excursion, I don't know.  My jeans were soaked through in back from the snow flipping up from behind and sticking to my pants.  
(Note to self, always wear woollies, even if it's warm)
I should be able to make one more walk tomorrow before we fly off to the land of Sun and Cactus.

  4. This is a question about the cattle and sheep in yesterday's post: how do you keep fresh water for them? We have ponds that get a thin layer of ice and have lost two baby calves this month with them falling through.

  5. Lil Red Hen,
    We used to cut ice every day on the stock dams, but no more. We have water tanks that remain flowing all winter. The ones for the cows are those gigantic tire tanks. We pipe the water from a well to them.

    It's awful to lose a cow or calf through the ice.
