Office and lunch room in Centennial

Office and lunch room in Centennial

We are back from an awesome couple of weeks in the Wasatch with everything from waist deep to spring conditions. I have a ton of pics that will eventually make their way to the blog, but for now you have to take my word for how good it was. Big thanks to Justin and Katie for your fantastic hospitality, Andrea, David and Maria for the usual great touring company, Daniel for dinner, showing us the goods and sharing your mountain wisdom, and Shane and all other random people we met for just being so open and nice to be around. I will be back some day!

For now, we are hanging out in Laramie and Centennial, enjoying the sun, the prairie and the occasional dump of new snow. My telemarking skills are evolving slowly but steadily, at least now sometimes I manage a full turn between snow eating tomahawk sessions.
