It's been a nice week of skiing, riding and general lolly-gagging as we enjoy the last few weeks of the off-season. Three days a week in the weight room starts in July where squats and lunges and core work and all sorts of fun starts in preparation for winter 2011-12. And longer bike rides with more climbs. And backpacking, and some skis in the peaks. I guess the on-season isn't too bad. We've been feeling a little lazy the last week though, and are enjoying it with some smaller adventures where we catch the little changes in spring. Here are a few images…
The last snow bridge crossing the creek melted out yesterday. Fortunately the wood nymphs constructed a little plank that keeps the fun going!
What does a winter person do in the summer. Go up. We're getting into tundra season, when Elaine and I use our successive days off to don the mega-mid, the packs and some Backpacker's Pantry dinners and head into the cooler high country. There upcoming overnight trips are definitely a highlight for us both.
Three days till the solstice. And then, the long trend where the earth tilts back towards winter and the snows eventually come again. Enjoy it wherever you may be!
