Frozen Paradise!

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  I mentioned the other day that we had an ice storm here on Tuesday, so we weren't able to walk anywhere exciting.  The next day, though, yesterday, we got to go up to The Top Of The World!  Mom and Dad thought that would be the route with the least road chemicals to get on our feety-feet AND that it would be pretty up there.  They were right on both counts!  Take a look:

"Everything's frozen!"
"This is heavenly!"

The grasses were all encased in ice still; it was so beautiful! Mags and I were really good about not pulling, and footing was good for Mom and Dad, so we got to keep going and going!

We took one of the less steep paths to get up to the top:

"Engage fur-wheel drive to get up the hill, Ragnar!"
"Good idea, Mags!'

It was a little slippery going up, but not bad.  We were careful to watch for ice patches.  Check out the view when we got to the top!

Isn't that a great view?!?  We walked over to the cliff edge and I took in all the sights:

"Wow, Mom!  It's a frozen paradise!"

Oh.  Where was Maggie?  She was  getting into something   umm ... no, wait ... otherwise engaged.  Yeah.  That's it.  She was otherwise engaged, or we would have posed together.

Moving right along ...

How about another look at the beautiful scenery?!?

We walked along the path up top:

Mom took lots of photos up there!  Here's one of our favorites:

And here's one last shot of Maggie and me as we headed back:

"I hope we get to come up here when it snows!"
"Oh, me, too, Mags!  Me, too!"

There's snow in the forecast for tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed for us!

Sköl!
Ragnar

  3. It sure was pretty up there with all that ice. Glad it was safe for a walk to the top of the world.

  4. Beautiful photos. We are expecting freezing rain, then ice, then snow. We hope the snow sticks around for a while, but none of us is crazy about that ice.

    Happy New Year!!!
