There is so much to be thankful for living and visiting the Methow Valley in the winter. The best part is that the scenery and the weather invite us outdoors every day for one activity or another. Here is an account of our outdoor time at the North Cascades Basecamp this winter- and we are only 1 month into the snowy season. Skiing, snow fort-igloo building, sledding, hockey and ice-skating. Bundle up and get outside!

The shortest day of the year is a wonderful time to welcome in the darkness and look forward to the brighter sunlit days ahead. A time to celebrate light, stories and music, friends and family, and to dance beneath the stars. The North Cascades Basecamp hosted a Solstice Celebration as part of our Thursday Soup and Presentation Series. Around the bonfire, Celeste and Kip Roberts led us in a percussion circle, a snow dance (which worked!) with chanting and song, and burning cedar and sage to welcome in the New Year.
