We left last Wednesday evening with plans to drive about halfway, which would have meant us stopping for the night in Hays, KS about 11:00pm. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans for us and about 1 1/2 hours into our trip we hit black-ice like I've never experienced before. Hubby was driving and did a great job, but man it was definitely a stressful situation for quite awhile. We finally pulled into our hotel in Hays about 1:30 and we were all thrilled to have a good night's sleep.
Thursday we slept in a bit, but then headed out to finish our trek across Kansas. We arrived in Breckenridge about 3:30, checked out our condo, and promptly realized we'd managed to lock the keys in our car. Thankfully we were in my dad's suburban and he has Onstar...so I quickly called them & after some confusion we were able to regain entry into the car. We finished up Thursday with a quick dinner at a local pizza joint & some grocery shopping for the rest of the trip.
Hubby & I heading up for a fun afternoon of skiing--the weather was gorgeous on Friday!
Me & Hubby
God's creation is so unbelieveable! The weather couldn't have been more perfect on Friday!
As you can see, they've had plenty of snow! Snow covered trees are so beautiful!
The weather was definitely a change on Saturday, with snowy conditions and clouds all day. I wasn't too sorry I had stayed in.
The whole group before heading out...
Our hottub...and the gorgeous snow covered trees
Kevin tried to get fancy and ended up buried in the powder...
and probably not 50' down the slope, my cousin Brian decided to make friends with a tree...
Nick had to help him out, thankfully I only fell one time and it certainly wasn't a wipeout fall--just an encounter with a little snow snake! ;o)
