Harriman State Park Sparkle Days Part 1

 When we arrived at Harriman State Park we found a winter wonderland!
We discovered Analise does like snow if she can pull her pink monkey in the sled.  We had the whole park to ourselves with a midweek yurt rental.  We unloaded into the sleds.
After sledding to the outhouse, we took a short walk down to the snow covered lake.  The snow was falling and the trumpeter swans were singing.
We headed back to the yurt to enjoy our home away from home and cook some dinner over the Coleman Stove which was provided.
This was some serious luxury camping complete with woodstove, lantern, cookstove, and large table.
Analise "helped" unload the dishes and set the table.
Since we did not have time to go up to the ranch, Amy decided sledding on the yurt ramp would be just the thing!
The next day, everyone woke up to enjoy a snow adventure.
Amy and Analise built a snowman with the help of their daddy.
The snowman had snowshoes and a mohawk.
Amy and Analise enjoyed the cute snowman.
Amy and I headed up toward the ranch while Analise took a nap in the yurt.
I spent the whole day outside with the beautiful snow, water, and sky.
There was just enough snow for snowshoeing and pulling the sled
This was some of the most beautiful snowshoeing I have ever done.
It was fun to have an adventure of just Amy and I.  We have both missed "sister free" time and vowed to do this again soon.
The snowy field was lovely.
We headed back toward the lakes and our yurt.  The water and snow sparkled.
It was a full day outside in such a beautiful place.
I fell asleep to the sound of trumpeter swans grateful for this amazing gift of a day.
