Memories!

Talk about bringing back old memories!
Hoodoo Ski Area ... a quaint little place about
half way between Salem and Bend on the summit of Santiam Pass.
The place where I learned to ski with Tom,
one of my university room mates, way back in 1966!


That's 3 Fingered Jack in the background.
The pioneers were so colorful when
they named mountains!
Or maybe they were just a bit drunk from all the serenity!
Of course it has changes a bit since then ... new lodge ...
some new lifts ... no more rope tow!

As you can see from the blue skies,
the weather has been unseasonably nice!
So, last Saturday I met the family there for a
little romp in the snow.
An hour or so on the sledding hill was just the ticket!Grandson, Steven, had fun!
He's getting so tall!
Granddaughter, Emily, had a blast!
Think she'll be snowboarding soon!

Oh how fabulous Dennis - to meet your family for a snow romp! Great to see the grandkids too Grandpa. That's what life is all about isn't it? Family. I bet you have no regrets about returning home.
