A few pictures of our drive up to Taos Ski Valley on the day of the first snow to pick up our season passes. It was an early snow, the leaves still clinging to the Aspen trees that protruded from the blanket of white like golden spires. Our dog Speedo loves the snow, and was in his ultimate happy place. Its the beauty in nature, and days like this that remind me to Go for the Gusto. Winter, we welcome you with open arms.
