CACHE COUNTY, Utah — When Utah resident Amy and Eric Flygare have a little extra time, they enjoy creating art.
But while some may use paints, sculpting clay or papier-mâché, the Flygare's tools-of-the-trade are snow shoes and their canvas is the snow-covered backcountry of Logan Canyon.
Over the last few weeks, Amy has been sharing some of their intricate snow shoe masterpieces on social media. What started as a way to get exercise turned into a fun way to spend time together.

On Saturday, the Flygares hiked out from the Franklin Basin trailhead and tracked back-and-forth across the snowy canvas to create a massive geodesic shape across the landscape.
It was their second try at snow shoe art, with the first one coming just before the end of the year.
"This one was definitely more difficult with deeper snow and some hills to contend with but it was still pretty fun." wrote Amy on Facebook.
Amy says Eric is the "brains behind" the art and he's already planning the next project.
It takes a few hours to complete the artwork, but in the end, it's all worth it.
"I'm grateful for a crazy husband who is fun to hang out with and for a nice blank canvas that God provided." wrote Amy.
