Waiting for Winter*

My second annual ski blog starts today over at OutdoorsNW Magazine. Here is an excerpt of my first post. If you like it, please click on over to the blog to read the rest here.

“On a clear September day we clambered up Cave Ridge Trail towards Guye Peak. Sweating and thirsty, we stepped out of the trees onto an outcropping and faced Denny Mountain and the Alpental ski area across the valley. In the haze of the afternoon sun our home mountain looked wild and ramshackle. Growth and rockfall littered the slopes, a marked contrast to the snow-covered smoothness of our typical winter views. So much that is familiar was camouflaged by foliage, but we could make out the faint lines of the lifts and the graying towers against the mountainside.”
