Ski party...


Traversing the slope....
I love skiing! I've been organizing ski parties with
friends every Saturday. This is our trip from
February 18th, 20 miles out of town to a
defunct gold mining dredge....

Some crazy skiiers...



A good view for perspective...
This dredge is basically a three story machine
on huge metal pontoons, moored in
a shallow lake. We skiied out over the 3 ft thick ice.
Changing temperatures had cracked it and
created impressive, deep blue fissures.
It was about +20 that day...
This dredge shut down around 1960...




My friend Amy---fellow knitter and skiier.
She's moving away in two weeks. I'm sad
to see her go. She is one of those great people
who link many friends and groups
of friends together.... Posted by Picasa
