Lazy Morning

We had a lazy, loungey morning before the Bus Fair that involved quite a lot of coffee, pancakes, and syrup…. These are the best mornings.

We’ve Moved!

We’ve moved! It’s official! We are living in our new home!

Our host (also a coworker and friend) is an amazing and lovely woman. She brought us a housewarming gift from the garden, and I was so touched. Our kitchen counter now has some color and cheer.

Avalanche Gulch, Mt. Shasta, CA

Avalanche Gulch

Yesterday was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of day! We skinned up Avalanche Gulch at Mt. Shasta (aptly named), where there was a massive D4 avalanche last weekend. The debris field was spectacular. You can see the incredible force it would have taken to bring down trees in its path, and the snow was as hard as concrete. It’s good to be in awe (with a healthy dose of fear) of these forces of nature.

We mostly had the mountain to ourselves. It was a good day for some backcountry skiing in variable conditions, away from the stress of the world.
