Watch out for those size 13, smelly feet Carla!




Standing on the pedals, pumping uphill



Rafting down the Elbow river.  Sandy beach to Fort Calgary, where the Elbow meets the Bow in 3 hours.




The world as Ramon sees it, through his new Oakley ski googles



Last day of the year at Sunshine and Ramon's first time skiing there.

New boots, new skiis, poles are 30 years old and the skier is pushing 55.

Sunshine slush cup.  Superman is headed for a pool of water below.

New heated chair at Sunshine, with the bubble cover.  Didn't need heat as it was about 15C

Hadn't seen Christine for about 20 years....summits can be great meeting places :)  We did a few trips with the old Goat Rick....Christine at least 100....me about 5 or 6.

Heading up the mighty Yam.  Ramon's 3rd time, Carla's first.


Just follow the blue squares.



On the summit with Calgary somewhere in the flat background.

Ramon ittin' the scree on the backside.

Fidgit spinners go everywhere with them.

More scree.......that's what they came for!


The not so little man in action

Carla way ahead in the distance

Showing their dirty bottoms.

Cooling off afterwards

Carla is not impressed.

That's better.....
