This past Saturday held a first in my life – 1st time ever on a pair of skis!
My brother and sister-in-law – Chason and Aubrey – took me up to the Cabin Creek trail in Snoqualmie and we spent many a calorie trudging through some amazing scenery.
I’m paying for my exertion as I write this, because it really is a total body workout!
The skis are much thinner than downhill ones, and the trail is built with grooves in the snow to make it a little easier, but it’s still hard!
Aubrey giving me a helping hand…
Don’t get cocky or distracted though. I was admiring the scenery a bit too much and managed to perform an involuntary impression of the abdominal snowman!
Me and Chase
What’s amazing is A&C turned up at the house with some chocolate waffles and coffee at about 8.30am, we were on the trail by 10 and back in downtown Seattle by 1pm.
I had no idea the mountains and all this funtivity was so close.
Hoping to get up there next week.
Might be the last time before it all turns to slush…
