This morning Natasha and I decided to do Longshot. Here she is going up Elk Lodge lift:
You have to climb up a short steep hill so here is Natasha at the top:
And here we both are taking a picture of ourselves…
And some shots of the view
And here is the GPS route – took 9 minutes to get to the first marker, 24 for the whole thing
another great day at Snowmass …
Here is Natasha at the top of Sheer Bliss:
Natasha and I had a fantastic meal at Gwynn’s restaurant.
And here is a panorama of the tallest peak
It was very cold and I was not appropriately dressed…
I kinda dressed for Tahoe not for 12500 at Snowmass… My face was warm… Very little of anything else…
After I made it down Nicholas and I relaxed
When I was a child I used to go running here. It’s really awesome actually …
And cross country skiing here at beaver lake
And although Nicholas was bored and cold, I was really happy to share this place with him.
My wife saw the picture in sunny California and rightfully accused me of freezing the poor child … And I felt sorry for him, except when we came back to my best man’s house I caught him doing this:
Cold my left foot! He was bored! And playing hockey is way more fun than seeing boring old memories of Dad!
