He’s home!

Finally.  7 days.  No contact.  No cellphones.  Crazy.  But T is home safe and sound.  He had the BEST time of his life.  So happy for him.

Gnar Gnar Pow Pow

Whew! Day two (2/12) in the books! Today was a great day for our Steez on Skis in Trees to do some prime research. First of all, yesterday was a great beginning. After learning to ski around, we got to playing some games, and Mr. Bartman thought he could take me, and he bit off a little more than he could chew! Anyways, today was a great day for a ski. We made the around two mile hike/ski to beautiful Phelps Lake. The view was AMAZING! (Check the pics). After a nice lunch on the “beach”, we started to head back to the vans. Stopping halfway, we dug some sick snowpits. Ours was up to my chin! Biggest pit I have ever seen. The day continued with some more skiing to the bottom, which included a little free skiing down a fresh, untouched powder hill. It was, as our instructor Jill would say, “Gnar Gnar Pow Pow”!!! Definitely some great wipeouts. All in all skiing isn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but still really hard. Getting up is the worst! The day ended with a way cool research thing in the Murie Museum. Looking at all the animals that lived in the area was so cool. Hawks were definitely the coolest. This is shaping up to be the best time I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to keep it going!!! Steez on Skis Reppin!
