What I've Been Up to...

 I just returned from a 7-day vacation in Colorado -- hiking, skiing, shopping and visiting with my good friend and ex-college roommate. We had a blast. Sharing some of the beauty... morning hike:
 Prairie dogs!!! They were everywhere...
 Summit of Mt. Sanitas...a big climb we did on the second day.

Finally, skiing at Vail, Beaver Creek and Arapahoe Basin (My fav):




Like my Vanna White pose? They were trying to eliminate the chance of avalanche while we were skiing so we heard a lot of snow cannons and rumbling going on...they shoot the missiles into the area where a cornice of snow is forming; this causes an avalanche and they shut down the road while it is cleared by a snowplow. Very wild.

What beautiful photos! Sounds like you had an amazing time, how nice that you were able to visit a good friend. I miss the mountains, Colorado is just gorgeous, isn't it?

Girl, you are so brave! I'm so uncoordinated, I'd break a leg just looking at the slopes.
