We had a gorgeous day with a high of 48 F (9 C). That was a tremendous break from our weather of the past few weeks and even The Herd seemed to enjoy the weather. We took several walks during the day, but this particular walk was near sunset Saturday evening along the Blue Ridge Parkway. After walking a good ways, Cheoah decided she needed to savor snow in her own special way – the Cheoah Slide:
Cheoah spots the perfect spot for a slide
Sniffing to make sure that it is perfect.
You start with a chin slide to crush the snow into your collar.
Then you slide the side of your face to make sure the ears are filled with snow.
Then, of course, you go for the alternate side of the face. Equal treatment is important.
Kodiak inspecting the form very carefully (he is a novice snow slider).
No flash is being used. Those are just crazy eyes.
After a really good slide, it is important to savor the moment.
We have achieved Cheoah Zen.
Ok - about done.
Time to stroll off into the sunset.
