There is something so rewarding about spending an entire day outside. Breathing deeply from sun up to sun down was how we spent our time as the year drew to a close. We were able to enjoy sun's first light with a quiet walk through the forest, with only the sound of the crunching snow beneath our feet.
The constantly changing light made for some great photos.
A little village of snow covered rooftops, what could be more picturesque?
For some of you blue skies are as regular a part of your day as brushing your teeth, but for us Northwesterners blue skies are like Christmas day.
We walked around Whistler Village and saw remnants from the past Olympics.
For Christmas we received this traveling gnome, since we book a majority of our trips through Travelocity it only seemed fitting. He thoroughly enjoyed himself despite his lack of a smiling for this photo.
We heralded in the New Year with dinner out and were feeling so wild we even ordered dessert. 2010 overall was such a great year, it is going to be hard to top in 2011.
