And if there is no room upon the hill

Yesterday was my actual birthday.
So I did what I always do..
I went skiing....

at this lovely resort way out
the back and beyond up Delaware County
Road 41 where the head waters of the
Delaware River come from.

Looking down one slope I had the courage
to go down....

Don't tell Harriet but this was a 60-70 degree slope
with a double black diamond rating
(with the 80 degree surprise thrown in
every now and again)

oh the buildings down the bottom are the lodge...
I took this slope by carving s turns from one side
to the other...

At my age (49) it's not how fast you go
but that you make it down in one piece
and that you never go faster than
your legs will let you..

See the reports of of crashes from
the Womens' downhill at the Olympics
