Winter Starts and the Adventures Begin

As the winter solstice approaches this week, we are reminded that midwinter has finally come and longer days are near. To many this means a chance to travel and refresh with the New Year. To those who visit, this means finding a love for the Wyoming Wintertime.

Here are just a few reasons why Wyoming Winters are our favorite:

Spectacular, quiet sunrises with the Rockies

Each of the Mountain View’s 6 guest suites provides a warm welcome to the day and a chance to wake up with the sun almost year-round. With over 200 sunny days a year, nothing beats our beautiful early morning sunrises that lead into warm blue-bird afternoons.

 

 

Over 25 Feet of Annual Snowfall Each Year

In addition to a lot of sun, our Snowy Range Mountains get a substantial amount of snowfall every winter ranging from 25 feet on top of the range to 100” around Centennial! Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding are just a few activities that the naturally snow packed area has to offer and are only a few minutes away when you need to get some energy out or just want to go on a rejuvenating day adventure.

Did you know there is a ski area near Centennial for downhill skiing and snowboarding? All of these are activities/topics to keep an eye out for in upcoming blogs!

City Living in Solitude

On a recent trip through a city, I realized something about me and people that live in the city center’s. “City people want to live alone but are afraid of the solitude.” Let me explain, in the city we move about our day and when returning home rush to get inside. Is this to avoid more human contact with the neighbor’s? I think so! All of the movement and action in a city allows one to be alone in a crowd, in a crowd one is not noticed like in a rural setting. In rural settings every move is noticed because so few exist. So we are more exposed. In the city we can move about barely noticed and live alone in large groups.

I moved away from the city 7 years ago and I realized this fact only last week. Now that I have experienced what true solitude is, I can not say I would ever live in that loneliness of the city again. It is dark and without feeling. The solitude of the middle of nowhere is like music, it is loud with life and peace at the same time. Your soul speaks and the people you have contact with are or seem more genuine.

If you live in the city…travel to a remote place and spend more than one day in this setting, and if you live in rural area go to the city and also stay for more than a day and observe what you see and feel. Then you may agree with my new mantra “City people want to live alone but are afraid of the solitude.”Storms
