.mad skiers.


.there is nothing like skiing down an open slope (this was taken at MAD RIVER GLEN 2008)...the loud sound of your skis on the snow, then you duck into a tree run and a HUSH falls over you like you cupped your hands over your ears.
.Last year, a good friend of ours gave us a trip to a Vermont Bed & Breakfast as a wedding gift. What an aweseome, awesome present. I want to go again right now!

Yes that hush is wonderful...I regret to say, I never learned to ski, my sister's husband and I were in the same patch of woods attempting cross country skiing and he, being somewhat more skilled, went on ahead, came back to check on me and found me cursing loudly. Yup, hushed at times and at others not...

Hi there! Thanks for the visit.
About getting contacts: I know right! They're awesome. I wish I could get Lasik done, hopefully this year. :D

I've never been skiing in my life but the way you describe it makes me desperate to learn. What a poetic post!
