During summer time, I day dream of snow on the order of once per day. Through fall, my white dreams increase… and often penetrate my night… one night I became stranded in Williams, AZ as avalanches crashed down Bill Williams Mountain! This morning I was climbing a ridge that separated two illuminated snow highways… before Dara said “you are going to be late for work”…
Sometimes my dreams become reality, and my reality becomes a dream… and after working only 2 days out of the last 11, I am feeling dreamy… My vacation started with a Christmas ski to a cabin. Blair hosted the cabin shinding, but first we had to get some food there before the Christmas party.
Eight of us skied the 1.5 miles to the cabin. I carried the Marks-Marino gear, while Dara carried Nahno. We all settled into the cabin, cranked the wood stove, and fired up the oven for a Christmas duck.
Then everyone went skiing! McKenna was getting tired so I loaded her up in the baby-carry backpack and we started splitboard-skinning up the hill behind the cabin. She fell asleep pretty quick and even slept through her first powder turns (outside the womb).
Yep, I took McKenna on a splitboard run down this beautiful little bristlecone meadow. Those are our tracks on picture left.
