Our Spring Vacation Pictures

We just got back from a great vacation in the East Coast- where we saw friends and family, enjoyed some nice spring weather, and had some great times. Our photos from the vacation are now online at Flickr; to see more than the few public ones you need to be logged in and registered as one of our friends. We stayed with our friends Bridget, Ryan, Ronan, and their two dogs and two cats.  Here are Lynn and Bridget on a stroll we took downtown.


We also enjoyed a nice afternoons at the lake nearby their house (click and drag or use the zoom buttons inside the panoramic image below).

We then drove to Washington DC and saw my aunt Ellie - including a trip to her art studio:


Before making our way to State College to see my mom in her home, where we also celebrated Passover with good family friends.

Colorado Ski Weekend

This weekend, we headed up to Silverthorne to do some skiing.  On my third day, I took off work and skied with my father-in-law Wally - it was my 15th day of the season, and his 101st!

We started by doing Montezuma bowl at Arapahoe Basin, which just opened this year and provides some pretty extensive and dramatic terrain as you can see:

For our third run we ended up dropping in on Schauffler's run, which is skiers right down the ridge.  Due to the steepness, and some challenging breakable crust snow conditions it was a lot more difficult to turn than anticipated, but we did fine in getting down.  A complete rush, but one that left us ready to head for the relative safety of the mogul runs back at the North Peak of Keystone where we spent the rest of our day.
