Snow Play ~ Dad and Daughter

“Snow Play~Dad and Daughter”  12″ X 16″ original oil painting here.

Happiest of memories!   I remember camping in the mountains with sleeping bags laid out on a tarp on the SNOW…we nearly froze to death.  Dad finally realized how bad it was and we packed up in the night and went home.  Once our family and young friend Patti climbed a snow covered mountain peak near Mt. Rainier.  Mom had prepared all of us for this daring adventure.  She had sewn slick patches on  our pants bottoms.   Dad had us all roped together for safety.  We had our own little boots with crampons and we carried small ice axes.  After reaching the top dad lined us up for the thrilling long steep slide to the bottom.  We were so excited!  What we didn’t realize was dad’s weight ended up pulling us down the mountain with all of us kids in tow… me on my belly with tons of snow stuffed up my shirt on BARE SKIN…getting dragged down the mountain hollering my head off!   I sure miss him.
