Flagstaff, Arizona – January 2012

I keep promising myself I’ll get at least a post a month, and then the end of the month rolls around, and I feel pressured..hey, at least it keeps me going. I realize I’m now most of 3.5 years behind (let’s call it “throwback thursday” forever, not that I post on Thursdays, or any given day), but the last year or two has really had very little that will be postable, so I still swear I’ll catch up someday… Anyway, winter turned to spring turned to almost freaking summer instantly, and then today dropped 40 degrees. Thanks, weather. It’s still

California, Google, Skiing squaw, April 4-10, 2011

Winter seems to maybe, kind of, be slowly abating. Next weekend I’m headed down to the city to see some family; here’s hoping that after I make it back we’ll be into the full swing of spring.

I went cross country skiing in Mammoth, downhill skiing at June Lake, and got over to stare at the tufa at Mono Lake twice in one weekend. Outstanding!

Mt. Baldy – February 27, 2011

Today we had a housing inspection. That’s one step closer to buying a house, I imagine? Anyway, there was plenty of snow there, so, it’s time to talk about snow, right? Nathan and Jason were going skiing at Mt Baldy, and I decided I wanted to go outside as well! So I took the opportunity to go with them, but to try out snowshoeing up in that area. I rented some snowshoes the day before, and that morning we drove out to the mountain. It was really quite lovely, with a lot of snow decorating all the area. We were

last weekend i went skiing (up in tahoe) for what is the the second time ever. the first being when i was 12. i took a lesson. it was great. then i took some green slopes (this was at heavenly) and fell most times, but didn’t die that much. we went to kirkwood the next day, and i hit every green there and didn’t fall on any of them. i am winn0r, hear me roar! things learned: if you feel like you are going too fast, you probably are. no, really, don’t look down at your feet.
