fun in the sun

Yes, that's me behind the goggles!  We were taking a little lunch break on the mountain yesterday, and I am trying on Dan's great helmet for size.  It's wired for sound so he can even answer his phone while "riding" -- this is what we used to call skiing, but we now have a new name for it!  Anyway, he and Bob got me out on skis for the first time in about 10 or so years, and while it wasn't always pretty, it was at least decent!  We covered the slopes of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, all the way to the top at 11,000+ feet and made it back to the parking lot safely.  It was a gorgeous sunny day, not a cloud in the sky.  Today is a replay of that, but we have spent it on a little road trip to Bishop while Dan puts in a day at the office.  We took a little side trip on the way back up the grade to go up the Rock Creek Road and then take the scenic route back to Mammoth Lakes, where I now am using the library's internet access to stay in touch with you!
We had so much fun last Saturday and Sunday.  We flew to Reno and drove down to June Lake where we were joined by Brita, Ben and Dan for a little family affair, and they combined talents to cook a delicious birthday dinner for Bob.  They gave him a new jacket for his ski vacation, so he is really stylin' out on the slopes!  Not much more news for now, but stay tuned...
