I can smell the snow in the air...

Phil and I just got home from the newest release ski video from Matchstick Productions (MSP). I'm so stoked to go skiing! We've already had snow on the ground for several days in town here. Not at our house, but within two miles, only 50-100ft. higher than we are. It's sticking and staying for multiple days.

I hit the climbing gym pretty hard yesterday and am getting excited
to get in some good shape again! Doing all this chainsawing makes me feel like a fat lumberjack, with no cardio health at all, even working over 7000 ft. everywhere we are. The next time I have to camp out it's going to be over 10,000 ft. in mid November. Yeah! On Monday we start a project with an organization right here in Durango called the Friends of the Animas River (FOAR). We'll be working to tame russian olive, which you can read about if you just click on the name. In a nutshell, it's an invasive species that thrives near water, but it's not as bad as tamarisk, which is a total pain in the butt, but it's getting there.

Wild mushroom season has come to an end because it's so cold now, but I had fun running around the woods this fall trying to learn about the nasty things while they were out. Here are some photos from some days up in the mountains and when Sophia, Phil's sister was in town.
