What we've been up to!

The boys went to a parade downtown Salt Lake City to celebrate the University of Utah's football team's great season - 13-0. Thanks Utes!

We went to Hardware Ranch in early January located in Hyrum, Utah. We went to the ranch with some friends, and it was good to see them. The ranch was not as great as I was hoping. It was good - not great. (The drive up to the ranch was fabulous. Wow! It was a gorgeous drive.) The horse-driven sleds go through the herd of elk and they could be seen from the parking lot. There were many people waiting in line to ride on the sleds, and it was very,very cold. The 10 minute ride was right in the middle of the herd, and the animals are massive and majestic. The sled stopped about four or five times so we could take pictures or just gaze at the animals. The guide spoke a little bit about the elk. I was a little too far in the back to hear when the sled was moving. Brrrr.....we picked a really cold day to go.

The visitors center at the Hardware Ranch.

The Christmas lights at Temple Square. Ooooh! Aaaaah!

I'm not sure which is worse, the awful cold we've had this winter or the fog this week. Neat pictures!
