For the last 30 years Two Below Zero has been offering horse-drawn sleigh rides through the scenic mountain trails of Frisco, Colorado. (It’s best sleigh ride I’ve found in Colorado so far!) As we waited for everyone to get checked in for the sleigh ride we made our rounds to each of the two horses pulling the five sleighs. The Princesses adored petting each and every horse, learning their names and attempting to give them treats. .
Once on-board, we were provided a warm, plush blanket to cozy up under. This is when you really get to know your neighbors, it’s cold out and you need to be prepared to share your blanket... The drivers made their queues to one another and we off. The jingling of the sleigh bells combined with the stillness of the trail and the amazing sunset views of the snow-capped peaks of White River National Forest set the stage for a wonderful evening of dinner, dancing and just a lot of fun.
What an amazing experience! And one I suggest everyone visiting Summit County - Frisco, Colorado - should do!!!
I love this story.
Two wolves battle inside all men, the dualities of life play out day to day....I should I shouldnt, I will I won't, I like you I don't, I am happy I am sad...ECT.
We are continually riding these ever changing waves of black and white. This eb and flow changing from moment to moment. How do we not get caught up in the darkness when often times it has a much stronger pull on us?
How we react makes all the difference. We all know by now that you cant have day without night you cant have good with out evil. So what I say in the face of anger, greed, jealousy ...or any those darker qualities is to understand these moments are necessary but at the same time take more energy and put it towards the lighter side of life. Acknowledge both sides but choose to move and feed the wolf of your choice and if you continually do that each day slowly chipping away at the pull of that negative wolf on you then at the end of one day somewhere soon the good stuff might just start to actually out weigh the bad stuff 💜

Went to Lake Dillon in Dillon, CO 4 days in a row trying to get a perfect reflection shot and this was as good as I could get, but oh well. The place still made for an amazing office. Super peaceful, amazing views, and the best/craziest part is that I had the place pretty much to myself all day erryday. Definitely worth the 1hr+ drive if you’re ever in the Denver area #lakedillon#lakedilloncolorado#dilloncolorado#frisco#friscocolorado#silverthorne
