We would like to thank you for your very awesome Christmas gift! We would have never thought to rent snowshoes for a weekend and go tromping off into the snow!
We went this weekend up to Jackson, New Hampshire and spent a couple nights at the ***Ellis River House|http://www.ellisriverhouse.com***. It was a cozy little ***bed and breakfast|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_2980*** with nice views of the White Mountains and a fantastic breakfast!
Saturday we ventured out early to ***Jackson Ski Touring Foundation|http://www.jacksonxc.org*** Lodge and got ready to do a little snowshoeing. Peter picked it up quite nicely, considering his being a newbie to winter sports. I enjoyed the snowshoes, but those ***nicely groomed nordic tracks|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_3008*** were calling my name and I soon exchanged my shoes for skiis. I’ve never skiied on nice tracks like that and it was incredible! I may be spoiled for life now.
Tired, cold and wet we went back to the inn and eased our muscles in the hot tub for a while, went out for some dinner and grabbed dessert at the North Conway McDonald’s. Do you remember that one we went to with Greg, Sue and Pete with the ***Ski Gondola tables|http://gallery.prwdot.org/nh_weekend/IMG_3042***? Fun, fun.
Being unable to resist the temptation we succumbed to the lure of the N.Conway outlet shops after a yummy breakfast and relaxing Sunday morning. We didn’t buy much but got to see some fine ice sculptures being carved.
It was a great weekend away and we thank you so much for giving us the little kick in the pants we needed to get outside.
Becky and Peter
