Harriman State Park Sparkle Days Part 2

After our first night in the lovely yurt, we set out on a family adventure to explore the park on snowshoes and in the sled.  I thought this trumpeter swan wing print was pretty cool.
The lakes and islands are home to many birds including the white trumpeter swan.
We saw moose prints and Gil saw glimpses of a moose in the distant woods.
We headed toward the historic ranch, enjoying the snow and views. 
The Titans loomed large in the distance.
Analise spent some time in the sled and some time in the backpack.  She is not the biggest fan of snow but did "help" pull the sled from time to time.
We wandered through the historic ranch buildings.
We continued through the ranch.
As we continued to the end of the ranch, the open fields stretched to the Titans.
Amy decided to ski for a big part of the time.
The open fields and barn were so amazing.
We stopped at the bridge to check out the swans and enjoy the sunshine.
Analise wanted to check out the bridge.
The snow, sun, and sky filled my soul with contentment and joy.
It was so peaceful and beautiful.
Gil tried pulling two girls for awhile which was a bit more challenging.
There were signs of spring in this snow covered wonderland.
Analise tried the little skis VERY briefly.
We found a small sledding hill to enjoy.
Analise sat under the tree while I made our lunch.
After lunch, we headed back to the yurt for Analise and Gil to nap and Amy and I headed out on our own adventure.
