In the dead of winter I don't realize how much I really do miss the sun. I really do love winter. It feels cozy. Bundling up and taking a walk in the crisp, cold air feels like a small victory. I don't even mind rain (which is good considering I live in the PNW!).
The weather lately has been cold and foggy for almost two weeks now. There is a blanket of fog that has settled in the valley and refuses to leave.
Yesterday, however, Little Owl, Brian and I found the sun! We went for a hike up a nearby Butte and had to strip our winter gear for t-shirts.
It was simply glorious. We didn't want to leave the top of the Butte and go back down in to the fog. Little Owl had so much fun. What a beautiful memory. Finding the sun in the dead of winter. It made me excited for spring and summer. For camping and backpacking. So many exciting adventures ahead.
