The little artist

Here's my little artist at work again. Brionna's art teacher entered her picture again this year in an art contest. She didn't ribbon but I love her entry. Later this month it will be sent to University of Idaho in Moscow for another exhibition. It runs concurrently with the University of Idaho Jazz Festival. Her picture should fit right in.

We got out this past weekend for some much needed excersize. Just north of Rexburg there is a turn off highway 20 to Bear Gulch. There was once a pretty good size ski resort there but now is long gone. They close the road to traffic in the winter there so it is open to cross country skiiers and snowmobilers. The trail winds up the mountain 2 miles where you come to Lower Mesa Falls. Then head up the mountain a little farther about 2.5 more miles and you come to Upper Mesa Falls. We have stopped there many times in the summer but not in the winter. It was just a perfect day for skiing. Not to warm not to cold. We ate lunch sitting in the warm sun enjoying the view and headed back. I only took a dump 3 times this time for the trail got a little icy and slick near the end. I was pretty happy to see the car at the end of the day. It was a great trip!
