Pictures from Alyeska

Hope you had a wonderful MLK Day. Someone told me today that MLK was an alcoholic...hmmmm, never heard anything about that one. Anyway, maybe you were able to spend your day off giving back to someone less fortunate than yourself.

Here are some pictures from last weekend, when we went skiing at Alyeska. Steven did pretty well with his skiing. On the other hand, my skiing skills need some practice. But, hey, what more can you expect from a Georgia girl?!

This first picture was taken from the top of the mountain. When you ride the lift all the way to the top, you are above the clouds. We couldn't even see the bottom! The ride up was easy, although a little windy. However, the trip down was steep and filled with lots of falls. Even though it was a "blue" run, it was icy due to a lack of recent snowfall. Now I understand the term "powder snob"used to describe those Alaskans that only go skiing after a large snowfall.

Look at the ski lift going way up above the clouds!! This picture was taken later in the day as the sun is lower and almost hidden behind the mountains!

Steven and I are looking forward to having some visitors this summer! Steven is enjoying making the itinerary for when all of his family is here. Now, what I want to know is who is going to be sleeping in the tent in our backyard?!?!?!?
