This is the first of two posts about how Dan and I spent Christmas Day 2017 — our first Christmas in Colorado. Following the lead of good friends such as Kate and Toni, we decided to spend Christmas at Rocky Mountain National Park.
For Christmas last year, Dan gifted me a beautiful pair of Fimbulvetr snowshoes — and then Cincinnati proceeded to act like a barren, snowless grouch for the entire winter. Though it’s late December, there hasn’t even been enough snow in Fort Collins to warrant a maiden voyage yet — but in Rocky, we found an opportunity.
(This year I also received a gaiter as a gift.)
Many park roads were closed — we wandered familiar areas including Moraine Park.
A (windy, brutal…,) beautiful day, and hopefully a new Christmas tradition.
