Wet Days

We wandered a little today, sort of like the Children of Israel. I blame the lack of sunlight and the heavy snowfall. Oh and Dug. Apparently, even though he was not in attendance, he was cause for our navigational confusion. And to think, I had the GPS sitting in the car the whole time. We […]

Of Sand and Snow

Posted by on Apr 6, 2009 in Bike, Moab, Ski | 2 Comments

Something has changed. The air is warmer and the snow is heavier. Has winter turned a corner? Is it starting to ease its grip on the coming spring? Perhaps. Saturday people were skiing in powder that was very nearly too deep. “The deepest day of the year” everyone is saying. I regretfully was unable to […]
