After breakfast at Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
Mount MacPherson on the right, Mount Begbie on the left. Mount English between and behind them.
Great beer is made in the name of Mount Begbie.
The Columbia River Valley in the middle ground between us and the mountains.

And great snow!

Shortly after entering Machu Picchu one is greeted with this scene.
Impossible not to continue to explore.

We are a long way above the river in the valley.
Machu Picchu is almost on the top of the world.

This is just one of the reasons I love to go skiing.
Being there instead of just watching pictures.

The lobby in the Prince of Wales Hotel at Waterton Lakes National Park.
This is the unhindered view framed by the windows.
Elegant living in spectacular surroundings.

Surrounded by this, would you ever want to leave?
Gives meaning to the term, “God’s Country”.

I spent last week at Revelstoke skiing. It is a pretty spectacular hill – most vertical in North America – and steep.
Great view of the Columbia River from the top of the Stoker Chair.
During the week approximately 3 feet of snow fell, making it a great week of powder.

This is why:
And fun too.

Along with twenty one others I visited Silver Star Resort last week for a week of skiing. The OFOS Division of the Hanover Ski Club played in the snow.
One reason that we do this is because it’s so pretty.
The mountain tops in the distance are lit by the afternoon sun. The fog in the valley adds to the drama.
If you stay inside, you miss the scene.
