Every year we cut down a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. It used to be that we could find good trees in Malad, but now we head to Soda Springs until we travel far and deep into the mountains. I'm not to keen of this long drive just for a Christmas tree, but we always have a good time.
When we find the perfect spot everyone heads out on foot with saws and lots of warm clothes. We all spread out looking for our perfect tree. When everyone has found their tree we now have to drag them down the mountain to where the truck is. Our truck does a pretty good job getting us as far up the mountain as it can, but we always run into a tree blocking the road.
