utah powder

Sorry for the delay in posting anything for a while but I was on an incredible ski trip to Utah. 26" of fresh, fluffy powder was perfect for skiing the hill, but unfortunately not too camera friendly for me at this point. I was able to grab a few pictures around the house we stayed in, as well as some cabin fever shots. Enjoy!

some good golden light

Yet again out at More Mesa, had to grab a few pictures of the perfect golden light that only exists at the end of a good day.

lincoln gets us to more mesa

No school on Lincoln's Birthday meant we got to bike out on More Mesa. I almost ditched the camera was convinced to do otherwise. Enjoy.

more shots around the yard

Decided it would be a good use of my time to run outside before sunset and snap a few shots of the yard. Here is what came out.

a bike ride to finish the day

We decided we should ride More Mesa later in the day to get some nice golden shots. The video was more than worth it, but that is for another time.

What We Finished With
Here's the noble jump we started with and fluffed today.

a hike to seven falls

Early this morning, our troop headed up Jesusita Trail to Inspiration Point and from there, we continued onward to Seven Falls. The day was warm, the water freezing, the shade pleasant.

a bad start and a good ending

This morning, San Marcos was the stage of a car crash. However, the day finished out with a nice sunset.

in the library

We found the most inviting place on campus in Royal Report today. It also happens to be a good place for pictures.
