Over Thanksgiving weekend me, Russ, my brother Max, and my dad went to cut down Christmas trees! This has been a tradition for Russ and I since we got married. We got all bundled up and headed to the hardware store in Preston, Idaho in hopes to get two tree permits. We were lucky enough to get them!
With help from the map given to us we found a place to pull off and look for some trees. It was slim pickings, but after trudging knee-deep through the snow and hiking a bit, we found some that would do. Luckily, we remembered the saw!
(Max thought he'd use most of the time to build a snowboard jump and go off of it over and over. He seriously hiked up, with his board and a shovel and built a jump! The kid is crazy.)
Some of the trees were so tall!
