Snowbird Lodge: Escape from the world


Last weekend The Hubs and I took an escape, thanks to some insanely generous friends who love giving surprises. We were telling them about our favorite vacation ever, and we always tell about our trip to Snowbird Lodge from a few years ago. 

Lo and behold, we got a card in the mail saying we were given a weekend here. There may have been some jumping and dancing in the kitchen as we opened the mail.

This place.  It's A-MAZING.  Mountains, hiking, reading, eating, sleeping, canoeing, paddle boarding, eating, sleeping... for real, the best vacation ever. 

My favorite parts were the reading and eating and playing more with my vintage Nikon lenses. The Hubs loved hiking and paddle boarding, and eating probably too. 

Funny story with that dog... we were eating supper one night and saw him walk by. Then like a split second later we saw him walk by again... the same direction. I immediately looked at The Hubs and he felt it too, what he called "a glitch in the matrix." It was so weird... total deja vu. Totally freaked us both out. Then a few minutes later two dogs came walking back by. We just hadn't seen them together since we'd been there! Ha! 

It was calling for rain the whole weekend, but we never saw one drop until we literally got in our car to leave. 

Thank you Garrett and Michelle for providing a much needed getaway in one of the most beautiful places we've been!
