Happy Holidays!

Could this be where Santa's secret new base is hidden? Due to global warming, the North Pole just doesn't have the snow and ice that it used to. I do like the look of this pic that puts the mighty Mt. Shasta above it all.

Too bad this mountain is filled with crevasses and avalanche paths. This picture is sure to make expert skiers salivate and drool. Been there and done that. I would be willing to do it again, except to make it all the way to the top. This isn't the "regular route" that most people take. I have to say that climbing with crampons (ice spikes for your mountaineering boots) and ice axe is a lot of fun! It's the coming back down that is scarier, with gravity pushing you down faster than you should go.

I'm going to try and stay busy this winter, with lots of plans on the table. For now, I'm just going to try and have a good time with relatives, cherishing each others company, now more than ever.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
