Monday, Jan 9

I’m back; Rick Graham and I had a fun time in Bend, Oregon. We were surprised at the amount of people at the show, it coincided with their Art Walk and the population came out in droves.

The next day Jim Peterson and I did a day of skiing up at icy Mt Bachelor. The evening of the show it started to snow in the town and of course the rumors were flying that feet were being dumped at the resort. So we decided to see how true it was the next morning.

After paying my exorbitant lift ticket we rode up to the top and found about two inches on top of month old ice with a nice strong wind howling in your face. It did make for some challenging skiing and was fun to go exploring the volcanic peak with Jim and test out the Cascade snow. Some people describe it like skiing in wet concrete. From the top the views were spectacular looking down on Sparks Lake and the Three Sisters.

It was also time to get back to work again; so here is today’s result on the boat painting.
