This year Elko completely skipped winter. We went from a fairly brisk fall with a few flurries straight into a chilly early spring with a bit of frost. Honestly, where's the snow?
Eli and Porter were so anxious to play in the snow (and Zach was so anxious to prove that his manly truck was more than ornamental) that we decided to drive up the canyon until we found what we were looking for.
And find it we did. After driving 45 minutes and gearing up for another 10 the kids only lasted about 30 minutes before their wee bum bums were frozen, but it was a magical 30 minutes.
I often don't give Elko and the surrounding area the props it deserves for natural beauty, but it does have some breathtaking spots. Thanks for the taste of winter!
