Snowbird Day Two

Our second day at Snowbird began by seeing a whole pack of marmots on our way to breakfast.

They were just nibbling the grass. 

This one looked up right as I snapped the picture.

After breakfast, we went to see the wildflowers at Albion basin, but as usual, there are tons of those pictures so I'll put them in a separate post. After that, it was back for more fun like riding on the bull...

searching for gems...

and going on the slide again!

One thing we were disappointed about was not being able to go on the tram or the peruvian chair lift. Both had been struck by lightning the night before we arrived at Snowbird and weren't functioning. Luckily, the ski lift started up again just before we were about to leave so we got to take it up the mountain. It was a fun ride with spectacular views. Poor little Skye, though. She was so sleepy from the adventurous day in the sun that she fell asleep on the way up! 

More views from on top of the mountain.

She did enjoy playing in the snow we discovered once she woke up, especially throwing it at me! This is actually on the other side of the mountain. After getting off the ski lift, there's a tunnel you can go through that takes you to the other side. It was pretty cool.

Here she is "skiing" down the snow with Lance.

Here I am at 26 weeks pregnant. 

This is on our way back through the tunnel. 

It was actually a very fun, little getaway we took and was a great deal. We've decided to make it a yearly event!

Wildflowers, marmots, funny faces, dragons, bulls, gems, slides, chairlifts, beautiful scenery, snow, tunnels and trampolines--what more could anyone ask for a quick get-away vacation!!! Making it an annual event sounds excellent!
