off the grid

We went snowshoeing this past weekend with Anders' sister and her husband, and we got to spend the night in their super cozy cabin in the woods. I feel like the weekend was straight out of a movie. Their cabin sits on the edge of the National Forest, is heated by a wood burning stove and lit at night by kerosene lamps. It seemed to me to be the most picture perfect example of a cabin in the woods, and we had such a good time relaxing and drinking wine by the fire. We left on Sunday morning for a 5 mile snowshoeing hike and, to make things even more magical, the whole area was covered in a new blanket of snow. It even snowed on our hike, which just added to the overall picturesque experience. We go on a snowshoeing hike every year and, out of the last four years, this one might have been my favorite.

I'm still very much a beginner at taking pictures. I'm learning my new camera, and while I'm slowly understanding it better and better, I will tell you one thing. Trying to shoot a white dog in white snow yields a lot of pictures that look like this...

Ha! Hilarious! Where's the dog!?!?
