As we all have figured out by now, I am a horrible blogger. In the almost 6 months that I have been here I have blogged all of 3 times.. So I figured now that I have one week left, I will try to make up for it.
I’m trying not to do monster blog posts so it makes it quicker to read and I can keep everyone more entertained posting more frequently. So I should be posting more often over the next couple of weeks or so!
I was able to go to the Festival de Mascaras in Barva with my mom and sister. I’m a bit slow, this was back in March. The festival started when the natives tried to scared colonists away with masks. Now its pretty much just a show of a bunch of different masks, little and small. It was cool seeing all the different masks, there were cartoon characters, famous people and monsters. People in masks had dances and played a soccer game. It was really fun and I wanted to stay all night!
Our 16 year old daughter is climbing on a plane today. She’s on her way to a 6 month foreign exchange in Costa Rica with AFS. We’ve been planning this for about 6 months and yet I find it hard to believe that the day has finally arrived.
Fall break weekend fun. We trucked it down to Slot Canyon’s Inn in Escalante and had a little fun on Saturday hiking Peek-a-Boo and Spooky Gulch slot canyons about 25 miles down the Hole-in-the-Rock road just outside of Escalante. The fall weather was just perfect for hiking in the desert with a load of kids.
All the late storms this last week have dumped loads of snow in the Wasatch mountains. Here’s what Bishop’s Bowl at Sundance looked like when the storm cleared for a minute and the sun came out.
See all the squiggly lines? A lot of those tracks are mine- and my gal Q- who had the day off of school- we were doing our best to fill in the gaps, until our legs could no longer hold us up. It’s about time I got a powder day in, or, I should say… it’s about time I got myself out onto the ski hill to enjoy a powder day.
