As always, Chick-on has trouble distinguishing between a bullet and a dash.

I was amazed at the number of photographers-with-tripods that I saw this weekend. Lots of DSLRs, and one view camera!!

Plan was sorta to do some glissading off the Dance floor...
But lazy butts said "no mas" after getting up there and setting up shop.
Something about "we did enough up for today".

Or maybe it was the poofy stuff...


(btw ... the summit guy that wanted to go up Clouds... we alluded to how lucky he was with the snow situation
to attempt that in a day... if he woulda tried last weekend... we woulda said... "hahahahahahahaha ... good luck!" ) wink
