Since our fridge is tiny, it requires us to make daily trips down the hill for supplies and groceries, because that’s all we can fit into a backpack.
It also means A LOT OF STAIRS. Not quite uphill both ways in the snow, but usually uphill at the end of the day with a heavy backpack. (Thank you, Ken, you are a rockstar!)
While both of us found this to be challenging in the beginning, we find the stairs to be getting slightly easier with each and every climb…
And while Ken is clearly at the top of the leader board for trips down the hill, (we are keeping a daily tally) we have both seen how this makes life a little more colorful and maybe even more thoughtful, as we can’t just hop in the car and grab something from a store easily at the end of a long day.
Another great shot of our stairs from across the valley up on cemetery hill.
