Bullion Basin, WA

Took advantage of the partial sunshine, snowy weather, and the fact that we're mostly done getting our house ready to put on the market (wooo!), to check out a spot called Bullion Basin. It was super cold, and I'm really out of shape, so we only did one lap of the top glades, but this tour was SO MUCH FUN.

Every 2 years, Cary and I apparently get really stir crazy and decide that we need to change up our housing situation (see exhibit A and exhibit B). I'm pretty proud of us that this time it took 3 years before the itch hit, but its definitely that time again.
