January sure flew by! It was a busy month and I worked a lot of weekends (in fact I think I only had 5 days off all month), which didn’t leave a lot of time for enjoying the outdoors. I did manage squeeze in a few familiar hikes, though – Picacho Peak, Borrego Bear Wallows, and the Windsor Trail, to name a few.
Last weekend I finally made it up to the Ski Basin for the first time this season! After growing up skiing in the Midwest, I am still blown away but the beauty of the ski mountains here. The snow wasn’t fabulous and there wasn’t really fresh powder by the time I got up there, but 90% of the trails were open and it was a beautiful day to be on the slopes.
I always have some anxiety to put on my skis for the first time of the season. What if I forget how to turn? What if I fall? What if I’m not in shape for this? But as always, my muscles remembered what to do after a few practice runs, and we had a fun day.
I look forward to getting up to Aspen next month to try out some big girl slopes! And stay tuned for more Wedding Wisdom in the near future…
