Hello, World!

Welcome and thanks for stopping by. This is my first attempt at blogging. I plan to post about things that interest me – skiing, hiking, assorted mountain items, some photography, and a bit of politics and finance. I’m starting by archiving old hikes from as far back as a few years ago. Enjoy.

Update, 3:16pm 5/18/08: The archiving process is finally complete, and appropriately back-dated. Everything forward from this post is new.

A quick morning at St. Mary’s

Decided to head up with Nate for a quick hike up to James Peak. Due to winter-like conditions (full-on blizzard with several inches of snow with more falling) we didn’t make it, and turned back just above the “glacier.” It was still a fun morning, and Scout even started having fun once we headed down.

About to head down.

Skiing! Scout couldn’t keep up on leash so I let her go free and she just stayed in my tracks the whole way down. Could it be she’s turning into a good dog? Nah…

It’s hard to believe it’s May 10th.
