So we headed off to Colorado for some fun in the snow on our holiday. Honestly I have been missing snow just a bit since leaving Ohio 10 years ago and decided it was time to see it again. On this trip I was going to try something new and ski. I had never tried to ski before in my life, and I was certain I would break a leg or hit a tree. But now that I am safely at home I can say I am all in one piece, or as close as I was before going.
During the week we went skiing downhill 3 times (once at night), nordic (cross country) skiing once, tubing once, and snow shoeing twice. Phew, that sounds like a very busy week. Actually it didn’t seem that busy at the time. I really enjoyed every new adventure, and am already looking forward to the next trip for more skiing even though I am not a fan of cold weather. Fortunately we stayed so active I did not even notice the cold weather until it was time to return home.
Also on this trip I had the pleasure of meeting Jill Parker in person, and found her to be every bit as fun and genuine as she is on her blog. Jill and I met on the Loop at Runer’s World when we were both writing there. She came to Frisco with her son for a few hours of snowshoeing followed by lunch.
