Not Beach Walking

Our evening walk last night was decidedly not beach walking – frigid cold air, brisk breezes, and lots of creatures stirring in the woods.

Hey, these aren't palm fronds.

Hey, these aren’t palm fronds.

After a couple of weeks of sand between our toes and flat surfaces, we had to adjust to walking gravel fire roads with steep hills. The wind whistled over the mountain tops and rustled our fur. The temperatures plummeted and Hu-Dad has to keep our water bowls from freezing. The ski area next door is bustling with skiers and the promise of fresh, natural snow is in the forecast. The conditions are certainly much different than our last sunrise walk on the beach.

A family mountain walk.

As a family Siberian Huskies, we have only one thing to say about the cold temperatures and threat of snow – AWESOME!

Even Typhoon is smiling.

P.S. – Hu-Dad seems to have a slightly different opinion.

    I have to agree with hu-dad on this one sweetie pies. We live in Southern Florida for a reason!!!

    I’d bet you were all happy to get home. Typhoon does look pretty pleased! Juno spends more time outside in the cold than any other time. I think it’s energizing for this breed.

    Welcome home to cold, and possibly your favorite thing falling from the sky! That lovely, fluffy, white stuff called SNOW! Hope yo have a ton of fun! HuDad will not agree it’s lovely, you will have to convince him…

    I love how close Roscoe sticks to Prince Typhoon! And my Amarok would agree . . . snowy, blowy is the best!
    (I’m still not always convinced.)

    Oh happy Husky days. Cold and the north wind is blowing. Have fun guys and gal.

    I don’t blame you Hu-Dad-VERY cold weather and snow makes me want to hide in the nice warm house BUT I guess the herd won’t even let you THINK about not going on their walks? Love Typhoon’s smile by the way!
