Winter Upstate

What better way to spend your week off than in the woods? Cooking, drinking whiskey, splitting firewood and playing board games was definitely the icing on the holiday season. We stayed in a lovely new Airbnb in West Shokan, NY that allowed us to lay around every evening by a gorgeous fireplace. 

 

We visited Foxfire Mountain House one night for drinks and dinner, and ate numerous large meals at the Phoenicia Diner. One morning I dragged everyone to go tubing at Hunter Mountain with gaggles of children, which was a hilarious alternative to skiing or snowboarding. Thursday graced us with a gorgeous snow storm that piled up all over the woods. We spent hours galavanting around the forest and stumbled upon waterfalls and quiet landscapes. It was the perfect trip to get in the mood for the long winter season upon us.
