When skiing is fun..or is it?

This past weekend we headed up to Lake Tahoe for some skiing. It has been a pretty dry winter and finding enough snow can be challenging. But due to recent storms in Northern California there was plenty (for me) up at Tahoe. It was a beautiful day on Saturday, sunny and somewhat warm (40). We had a lot of fun skiing between the Nevada side of Heavenly and the California. It was while we were skiing on the Rim Trail going back to the Nevada side, that I began to wonder, "When do you know if you blog too much, and see a good blog in the happenings around you?" I was much relieved to find out the answer, I don't blog too much, because if I did I would have taken a picture of the man who had gone behind a not to hidden tree to pee. He was right off the trail in plain sight! I soo wanted to stop and take a picture for my blog, but better judgment came through. So now you just get to see boring pictures of me and Steve.
The weather started turning on Sunday, it started to rain in the afternoon and continued on through Monday. When we hopped on the Gondola down by the lake to ride up the mountain is was raining. It turned to snow half way up the ride. It was snowing pretty good but it was a really wet snow. Visibility was pretty low and our goggles would get frozen spots from the snow hitting the goggles then melting then freezing. It was not fun, the ride up the lifts was windy and cold, so after three runs I was finished. By the time I skied back to the gondola and got down the mountain I was pretty wet, but the lodge was nice and dry and the fire was warm.
It was still a fun time and finished it off with dinner at my sister's house in Elk Grove. Thanks Kathryn. (If you double click on the pictures, you can really see the snow coming down)

You guys do a lot of fun things...together. that is neat. I will pass on the skiing though. Yes, thank you for your indiscretion at not putting some kinds of pics on your blog. :) But you don't blog too much, we need to hear more from you! And you need to play the pay it forward game... :)

That looks pretty chilly. I kinda wish you would have gotten a picture of the pee man though. I was at the gym and saw a girl there in full make up and hair done, she even had fake eyelashes, the thought of how to get a picture of her did cross my mind. I guess that would have been extremely rude though and I am grateful when I actually use my better judgement!

I think there is no such thing as blogging to much !! Unless of course you blog instead of eat !! That would kind of be a real sickness then wouldn't ya say?? lol
Love the pictures and I vow to become a "Lindaesque" kind of person in the future !! I want to live life to the fullest, maybe not a breakneck speed down a snowy mountain, but some other way !!
