hiking Tucker Mountain in my big backyard.  

pretty much right after i took these pictures, my favorite person to ski with tore his knee in a billion places, and my winter got a whole lot less epic (though not as bad as his winter, to be fair).   

i'm skiing with a liiiiiiiiitle more trepidation these days, though our colorado spring began with heaps of surprise snow.  and more in the forecast.    

there are only three weeks left until the end of the season.  things are winding down.  my knees will be thankful for the off-season, but the rest of me hates the idea.         


hiking "the cirque" in winter park, colorado.


"The ski bum trades security for face shots, the future for the moment. Considering how hollow the promise of a corporate career has become, who can say the ski bum is not the wiser investor in his or her youth?"

thanks to this article for legitimizing the bum's life.  :)


hiking in ski boots, boatloads of snow, backcountry powder turns...
my mind was completely blown this week.
