This morning we left before daylight with tools and packed lunches.Though I always love going up there, I did mutter a bit on the way about this not being on my to do list today. Doug just laughed.
It was a beautiful ride up and I could see snow on the highest peaks. When we turned into the drive I was shocked. It seems that for part of my Christmas he had been busy putting in a long awaited drive. A new fence line was run along side of it with a new gate. I knew he had been working a lot lately and some nights he was pretty late, but had no clue this was going on. Our old drive was not even wide enough get a trailer in and required four wheel drive to get up it. All I could do was cry. It was so beautiful! With this done it means barns can be built and new fences can be run.
Luke called from school this evening. So? He asked. I cried. I knew you would, he said.
Looking up the drive:
(And yes that is a cow skull.... don't ask I said no the the second one he found!)
