  1. Happy Holidays, Rita!

    What spectacular photos to celebrate the season - quality skiing, the beauty of national parks, and a bison (priceless!!).

    Wishing you, Tim and Annie a 2015 full of memorable travels!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Vickie!

      Tim and I (Annie too) wish you a very Happy 2015 in Southern California, and wherever your travels may take you!

  2. First and foremost, here's wishing mountains of joy for you and yours during this Holiday Season and throughout the New Year.

    Regarding your photos, they beautifully depict the five fabulous year's worth of winter fun experienced by you and Tim. I have to totally agree with the sentiment expressed by Vickie: "What spectacular photos to celebrate the season - quality skiing, the beauty of national parks, and a bison (priceless!!)." I could not have said it any better than that!

    I clicked on each of your links to reports of your past adventures. I'd hoped to be able to say which was my favorite, but it proved to be an impossible task. But if absolutely 'forced' to pick one, I suppose it would be your outing at Lone Mountain Ranch. The cross-country skiing there looked awesome! It's my favorite winter sport!


    1. Thanks, as always, for your comments, John!

      You mentioned that Lone Mountain Ranch was your favorite post. You might be interested to know that the Nordic Center there was rated tops in the country by Cross-Country Ski magazine. The area encompasses 2200 vertical feet of terrain and includes 50 miles of trails—from beginner meadows to expert steep hills. If you're ever in Montana during the winter season, be sure to check it out!

      Happy Holidays!

  3. Finding another post by you made my day, Rita. Each photograph was worth spending time with, and I did. My favorite was of you, Tim, and Annie with Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef being close seconds. I hope the coming year holds many more trips for you to enjoy and share with your readers.

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed the photographs, Janet.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
