Last weekend we headed up to the top of Sandia Peak. It is a different world on the back side of the mountain. As we drove higher and higher snow started appearing. I was so excited because we get very little snow in city.
We explored the Sandia Peak lodge area, which had tons of scenic look outs and an inch or two of snow. Then we headed back to the forests. The little one is obsessed with his construction trucks and carried his little front loader all over. At first he thought it was fun to scoop up snow with it and then his hands got cold and he cried. Hopefully he’ll decide he likes his mittens soon……
We headed into the lodge for hot chocolate and to get warmed by the fire. He was a happy camper after that. There is nothing that hot chocolate won’t fix!
Layers were key for the day, since the temperature fluctuated drastically from the look outs to the forest to the lodge. I paired this vibrant plaid top that I got for our trip to Alaska with a winter vest and a basic infinity scarf.
