Peak 2 Peak Gondola

This is the gondola that connects the Whistler Mountain with the Blackcomb Mountain at the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort in - you guessed it - Whistler, British Columbia, Canada.  Great place to ski once you get above the cloud deck and the gondola is a great way to get to see both mountains.  You don't even need to be a skier!

According to their website, It is the longest and highest lift in the world for an unparalleled perspective of British Columbia’s rooftop – from incomparable views of snow covered peaks to riding through the mist of the clouds. The world record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was built for sightseers, skiers and snowboarders alike.

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.

Making a Blanket

I'm going back to Arizona for this post, specifically at the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona.  Our tour guide stopped here on the way to the Grand Canyon so we could do a little shopping.  Any souvenirs purchased here are non-taxed and all proceeds go to those on the reservation.

This lovely lady here is creating a blanket that will take approximately 6-8 months from start to finish.  It's all done by hand and she said she was commissioned by someone in California to make it.  As you can see, it's probably almost half done.  I asked her how long it would take to complete it and she said about another 3-4 months!  Wow!  She makes it one thread of yarn at a time and she said she comes up with the design off the top of her head! Incredible and beautiful!

I took this shot back in October so I'm guessing she's very close to being done now or already done and starting on another one.  I just wish I would've gotten her name.

Tahoe Sunset 05

This is another shot taken from a ski trip a couple of years ago.  It was our view of Lake Tahoe from our accommodations and taken on the last night we were there, I believe.  What a sunset!

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.

Snowy Sun Valley

This is a two-shot iPhone pano taken from the Upper Canyon run overlooking Ketchum, ID (aka Sun Valley) below.  I really miss skiing this year, but will be doing something just as fun - if not more - very soon!

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by!
