The sun just clears the mountaintops to the south for the middle of the day. Sunrise at 8:30 and sunset at 3:15 calls for making the best of what daylight there is. After days of heavy overcast the sun came out and people did too.
The kids were having a great time!
There was sledding, too!
Okay, maybe the brakes were a good idea.
This short day was fading then; the sun low enough at 2:30 in the afternoon to cast shadows on the mountains. We live in such a beautiful place.
Happy Solstice Everyone! The days are getting longer now.
P.S. The kid buried in the snow lived to sled another day.
