Artichoke…

The heart of the ‘choke… yum…

Sorry about the lack of posts lately… The weather has been kinda crummy (…until today…) and I haven’t had a free moment!… But with warmer weather comes more outdoorphins!!!!

VAILcation…

So being back at work after a vacation is possibly the worst thing ever… Especially when you were so active on the vacation that you didn’t really “vacation” so to speak. With that… my VAILcation was great… amazing snowboarding, quality snow, bluebird skies and amazing company!

Here’s a few shots of the surroundings…

Mountain above Vail Village.

Beautiful, warm and the slopes = heaven!

Sigh… back to work.

Desolate…

It has been pretty comfortable weather the last few days but last night the air had a winter chill to it… I got to my place around 9:30 – not super late – but the streets were eeriely quiet. Even though I am one of a few million people that live in this city.. its amazing for a brief moment to feel like your alone.

Desolate.

Darkness…

I do love snow… and I do love winter. However I am not typically a fan of how early it becomes dark…

The worst is leaving work in darkness.

But it does make for some fun night time photo ops!
