...what it's not: :)
This is a Yurt: A tent-like structure with a woodburning stove. So yurt-ing is snowshoeing to a yurt with overnight gear on your back.
Amanda and Jacob are two of the neatest people we know... so fun to have friends to "play outside" with!
Perched on a hill, the view off the porch was gorgeous!We stopped for PB&J at the Yurt, then continued on another 3 miles up to Montgomery Pass
We carried a sled up with us for some fun on the way down:).
1st shot at it
3rd time's a charm:)
We made it back to the yurt just before sunset
Trying to stay warm while we wait for the fire to start
The air cleared just in time for mini-s'mores: mini marshmellows, chocolate chips and Teddygrams:)
So temperature control was a bit tricky in the yurt. Knowing temps would dip into the single digits, we figured piling wood in before bed would help keep us warm longer... we were right. It got to 105 before we got up to open the door - yikes! :)
