A Winter Wonderland on a Two Horse Open Sleigh

Thursday at dusk we headed off to the Copper Mountain Stables for a sleigh ride through the meadow at the base of the ski slopes. It was magical as the snow fell, we sang Jingle Bells, the guide told stories of the logging and mining days, and of course the horses snorted and sniffed.
We stopped at a warm tent in the woods to make smores, drink hot chocolate and sang songs along with the gal playing the guitar...even did the hokey pokey which was a BIG hit with the kids. It was dark when we headed back ~ the mountains were dark, the stars were out, and all was quiet.
