May 13 - 4th Crossing Environs
« on: 05/11/13, 09:43 PM »

   I took the TAY van loaded chock a block full of testosterone - 6 teen age boys and me down to Paradise.  While the rest of the Paradise world went up, we went down - one lap into Barnes Flats from the parking lot, then 3 laps on the slopes past 4th crossing.  Great snow!  I brought back 5 extremely sun burned boys and one smart one.  The 5 were shirtless all day, and no, they did not need sunscreen, Mr. Heath (Dad), even when I mentioned the pink tones coming on.  Oh well, you can lead a horse to sun screen, but you can't make him rub it on...

It was a fabulous day to be out in the mountains.  The boys had as much fun sliding, building kickers, playing capture the flag, and crossing snow bridges over the creeks, as I did climbing and skiing.

The best part of summer skiing is napping on a warm rock.
