2010 Christmas tree

Filed under: Winter — Tags: , — montucky @ 9:51 pm

For many years we have followed a tradition of going into the forest and cutting our own Christmas tree. In this region, tree permits are available for the National Forests for only $5 and the outing is one of our family’s favorites. In many places near home there is an abundance of trees that need to be thinned out anyway. I was afraid that today’s trip would be cold and difficult because of an icy road, but it turned out to be a very pleasant outing. The road was snow packed and snow covered, but the hard ice had not formed yet on the surface and driving was good. This year’s tree is a Douglas Fir.
