Cold feet

After going through the winter and needing to wear sunscreen on Kilimanjaro, Mammoth Mtn, and Copper Mtn, I somehow forgot to shield my feet from the intense sun rays of our Wisconsin spring. I can vouch for my Chaco sandals having 100% UV protection on the straps...

Lil Buddy thought my feet deserved a photograph.

The article basically said 'Don't put your energy into the things you own or want, divert your energy into the people & activities you love'. I couldn't agree more - I need to put my second car up for sale this weekend!

I spent the weekend at Arapahoe Basin & Copper Mountain with Erich, Heather, and Ed. We had some fresh pow on Sunday, which made for a blissful end to the season. While running through the trees, we found a nature-made rainbow rail...
