Beautiful sight with a ton of snow!!

Michael and I took a trip to Steamboat, Colorado about a month ago. On our first day, we took skiing lessons. This was a first for both of us, but we learned quickly and then we were on our own for the rest of the week. We did great skiing and on the last day started at the top of the mountain and skiied all the way down throughout the day. We were completely exhausted, but had a blast. While we were in Colorado, we went snowmobile riding. It was so much fun!! Our guide took us through the trees and in open fields. We got to "play" in an open meadow where Michael learned that they had a limit to the speed on these bikes. The scenery was breathtaking and the snow was unreal. Us Mississippi folks don't get to see that much snow often!! Michael and I had a great "adult" trip and we are already planning a trip back to Steamboat with the kids!!
