We’re not just dreaming of a white Christmas

Like many of you, we’ve been wrapped in a winter white blanket of snow these last few days, just in time for Christmas!  We excitedly welcome the snow, as it means cozy fires, warm soup, a bit more family time, and breaking out our cross country skis!

The drifts of snow weren’t quite as impressive as some that made the news in North Dakota, but there’s something magical about fresh, untainted snow covering everything as far as we can see, and seeing the real life “flocked” Christmas trees all over the resort!

Two to three dozen trumpeter swans migrate through the area and visit Boot Lake every spring and late fall.  We enjoy watching them glide back and forth in the lake, sometimes stopping to feed right in our swim area!  They are particularly beautiful with the fluffy white backdrop!
