Mr. and Mrs. WildSnow — Diamonds for the 30th Year of Backcountry Together

Post by blogger | September 9, 2015      
Content in our little fiefdom.

Dogs look like their people. In the backcountry, marmots resemble their neighbors. This couple took up residence about twenty feet from the deck of WildSnow Field HQ, and dare I say, they look rather familiar.

September marks 30 years of wedded adventure for Mr. and Mrs. WildSnow. Lou sports a few white whiskers but for me, only my hairdresser knows for sure. Hopefully soon our locks will be frosted white as we ski tour on peaks of endless backcountry wonderland.

The 30th wedding anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of pearls or diamonds. We’ll get ours when the temps drop and the mountains get covered in a million sparkling crystals of frozen delight.

Winter, come on!

Anniversary party the WildSnow way.

Anniversary party the WildSnow way. I think I heard Lou singing “Put Another Log on the Fire…”

    I told Lisa if our cabin was too small, she could move into the marmot’s house, she was not impressed by my brilliant idea. Next thing you knew, I was living there instead! (grin). Lou
