Winter getaway to the North Cascades
Maybe it is all the Hallmark movies we have seen over the years, but we always feels like we are missing out when Christmas comes and it has not snowed. This year we lucked out with a brief snow storm which arrived Christmas Eve and then stopped by mid Christmas morning. Waking up to a blanket of white definitely felt like pure magic on Christmas day! Well, after this brief taste of Winter we craved more snow, so we packed up the car and headed to one of our favorite places- the North Cascades.
The first day we arrived there was already a good amount on the ground, but over the next twenty four hours we received over a foot of snow and felt like we were truly in a Winter Wonderland. During our time there we went sledding, went on a sleigh ride, cozied up by our fire and felt the transformative power of a change of scenery. Although we were reluctant to pack up and head home we look forward all the future visits and wonderful memories we will make in this gorgeous place.
