Saturday, my family and some friends drove up to the Schweitzer Mountain Resort, where a free ski lift day was going on.
I have never been downhill skiing, though I've grown up practically in the shadow of this world-renowned ski resort. I've also never ridden on the ski lift. I was in for the thrill of my life!
Just the view from the resort parking lot was breathtaking.
Zooming along 20-40 feet in the air on the ten minute ride up the mountainside was sooo fabulous! I'd ride this thing every week just for the view - if I could afford it. :grin:

The awesome Bronze Age moccosians my bro designed and crafted.New summer bag - thrifted for five dollars! It's simply perfect.
Lunch time leads to nap time
I am inspired that for hundreds of years, thousands, this majestic beauty has stood, indifferent to the upheaval and turmoil of a mad world.
Yet in all of it's glory, it stands as a picture of a fallen world, an earth ripped apart and destroyed by a terrible torrent of water.
God's creation is a marvelous and awesome thing.
And on the trip down, I clutched my shoes in my lap and kicked my feet in ecstasy.
