Summer Snow Thoughts

Yup. Snow. That’s what I think of on hot summer days where the thermometer pushes 87 degrees F (30.55 C) and threatens to melt my soul. It’s my matter of survival. One of my favorite snow memories from this past season is the day Sundance closed — the day before Easter Sunday. I was out […]

The Meltoff

Such a bittersweet time of year. As I write this, I sit in my living room with the windows wide open (even though it’s almost five in the evening), and I hear the snow melting. Patches of snow linger on the base of the hill outside my window, teasing us with thoughts of spring hikes. […]

Wise Words From my Son

If you surprise your board, it’ll surprise you… CJ Pollock That was the response after some messaging with my kids about a fall I took on the trail yesterday. It was totally my fault. As I said to them – I was going fast toe-side and decided at the last minute to take another trail. […]

Connections

Big little things can be so important in one’s life. For example, when Uncle John and Aunt Anne decided to pop in and visit us during their trip through the northeast, it seemed like a little enough thing for them. For us? It was a really big thing. To think that in their travels they […]
