Some days mother nature just cannot be beaten.

Natalie and I had a great Christmas weekend.  We spent Friday and Saturday laying around watching movies and just being lazy.  It is so nice to not have anything that we need to do.

Sunday we were getting a little stir crazy so we headed up to Mt Baker.  Before we left I knew that a big front was supposed to come in Sunday night and drop a bunch of snow but the weather was clear as we headed up the mountain.  As soon as we pulled into the parking lot the snow started really flying.  We geared up and headed out and the weather just kept getting worse.  As we left the resort gates and headed out of bounds we knew the storm had showed up early and it was going to be a short trip.  

We made it 300 yards outside of the ski area boundary before the wind and snow cranked it up the final notch.  So we tucked our tails between our legs, admitted we had been beaten and headed back to the car.  It was a rough ride back but we made it after not too long.  

Days like that make the sunny ones so nice.  You win some and you lose some.  The beer at Boundary Bay Brewery coming back home was tasty as always though.
