A day of skiing

After a fun day of cross country skiing we woke up to another beautiful, gorgeous winter day!

Oh the drive… isn’t this place just beautiful?

DSCN4652-smallI put my skis on, but I’m not really sure what to do.  I think this is my 6th time in the snow, in my entire life.  Once 3 years ago.  The other 4 or 5, 25 years ago.  Not my forte, I’d say.

I still enjoy love being out there.DSCN4649-small

So after many runs on the lower, short slopes, I get on the (big) lift and enjoy the view.

It is an amazingly beautiful day!  For me, there isn’t much to remember.  For me all is learning.  And I do (learn) every time we get up there.  I don’t really think I’m getting really good at it.  I’m mostly staying away from injuring myself!
