On Sunday we went out to cut down our Christmas tree in the Pike National Forest. Permits are $10 and the max trunk diameter is 6″. Though the temperature was only in the 20’s the sun made it feel much warmer. So, with bluebird skies it was quite a nice day. We searched for over an hour and found a decent 13 foot tree. We only had to haul it up one hill and then the walk was pretty easy. Check out the photos in the photo album Tree 2006. When we got it home we had to cut off about a foot to make it fit in the house with Lisa’s handmade angel on top. On the way back we stoped to eat at . . . . . . . . no, not at Sonic, but A&W this time. A fun day in the woods.
