We had a blast getting away from the flat lands of Texas! The mountains were so majestic and each time we visit mountain areas I fall deeper in love with Jesus for creating such wonderful views of his earth!
I love my Casio Exilim 7.2 because it produced fabulous pictures. This pic is one of my favorite mountain shots of the slopes from the ride on the ski lift!
Praline, Roux and Beignet are always in competition to see who can get down the mountain the fastest and I'm always left behind enjoying the beautiful scenery of the snow and trees. Conversating with other skiers as I slowly and carefully make it down without injury!! Roux always seems to beat Beignet while Praline keeps my anxiety up as she makes it down at what appears to be 80+ mph.
I actually overcame one of my fears this year by taking on a 3 1/2 mile downhill Green! Just so you'll know.... this Green is actually a Blue at other ski resorts. We had the awesome experience of skiing at two resorts this year with one being more difficult than the other.
Sadly, while we were at one of the resorts a 18 year old male, who was with his church group was killed while skiing. He ran into a tree and was killed on impact.
On a happier note, all is well with us and we are home safely....back to reality! Oh, and BTW Praline and I could not resist asking this snowboarder about his 16 year old locks. He gladly accepted our invitation to take a pic as the only lockers and AA's on the slopes! :) Click on the pic to get a closer look!
