Golden Globes 2015 Highlights

Five Reasons to Love Snowshoeing


Snowshoeing is saving my life. And probably my marriage. And my family.  And my sanity. Well, all that is probably a bit of an exaggeration, but it is 100% true that it’s made my life much better for 6 months of the year. It’s like this. 7 1/2 years ago we left our cute little home in the Salt Lake Valley for another cute little home in the Snake Rive Plain. I loved all kinds of things about our previous…
