Stormy Solstice

By Ann Driggers

To mark the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year and the longest night, it seemed appropriate to go skiing, since so much of my time on planks these days is in the dark. Just a few hours after the earth tilted back towards the sun and in the gloom of the pre dawn morning we climbed up Sunlight Mountain.

And being the first day of winter the weather was appropriately stormy. Purdy new skis in purdy new snow:

Here comes the sun which we will see more of every day from here on out... but barely a glimmer of light through the clouds.

Happy winter everyone!
