Awesome day

I got to work a second day at the Kaiser Edwards clinic.  I took Friday off and this time I took Matthew with me.  After work we had planed to drive to my friends house that lives just west of Gleenwood springs.   However, nature intervened.  There was a massive rock slide in the canyon right before Greenwood springs.  The canyon and highway that runs through it was closed to all traffic.   We had already bough ski tickets at aspen/snowmass and I had already payed for Matthew's ski shcool, so I was determined to get there.  The detour went around the canyon and was over 200 miles out of our way.  To make it worse, there was a massive blizzard sitting on this route.  So after work we bought some snacks loaded up the gas tank and drove up into the scary mountain passes through snow so thick that I couldn't see a foot in front of me and wind gusting so strongly that it nearly blew me off the mountain.  Rather than the 2.5 hour detour that it should have been it took us over six hours.  But the important part is that we made it and we made it all safely and in one piece.

The next morning we go up early and headed down to the Snowmass slopes.  It was also so worth it!!  we had a spectacular day of beautiful blue skies.

We are both super excited to his the snow!

Corrine and I had such a great time!!

This is one of the main reasons I ski.... the views are spectacular!!!  This is all the way up at 12.500 ft.  

It was really windy and cold at the top but so worth it. 

Sneaky's run had the best views and was so sunny and warm!

We picked up Matthew from ski school and he went up to the top mountain and  skied with him back down..  It was blues all the way down.  I was so impressed with how he did!  He has no fear at all. 

So serious... and so handsome!!!

This statue is in one of the statues at Snowmass.  How cool!  It is to honor a Guide Dog from GDB.  

Skiing is exhausting!!!
