It was a solar powered Weekend in Paradise. After a weekend like this weekend - I'm almost left with hangover type symptoms. A little "come-down" after being so frickin' awe inspired by Mother Nature. These are places I keep returning to, time and time again and still continue to be blown away. I love you Banff National Park! Thanks for inspiring me to get out the door and explore your wild and wonderful places. And thanks for allowing me to share you, with like-minded friends who appreciate you, just like I do.
After my epic Friday, I didn't think it could get much better. But on Saturday, we enjoyed a perfect blue sky day and a awesome run in to Skoki with friends Mike and Phil. It was fun to share this place with them - we've run the trails together in summer, but the winter scenery really blew them away. It still blows me away. Especially, on a sunny blue sky day.

When we awoke to yet another perfect day, we happily dragged ourselves out of bed and headed out the door yet again. This time, our friend John joined us for a most awesome day at Sunshine Village. The plan was to go for a ski tour, ski up to Quartz Hill to enjoy the view, have some lunch and maybe make some turns.
