Ramon's latest shave.  He seems to get a new one every month.

I think I'll go for this hair style next :)

Had to pass on Mt. Denny and go to plan B

Larches starting to turn on Mt. Allan

Way back in high school in the late 70's, who would have thought that we would have a department of Climate Change in the year 2018.  Or that I'd even make it to the year 2018 :)  Such surreal times in which we exist!

The poma lift on the top of Nakiska that was only used for the Olympics

Plan B: Mt Allan and then to Plan C Mt Collembola

More awesome fall colours

The kids have now discovered Geocaching....something we didn't have in the 70's!

Long legged Carla continues to enjoy climbing

Our recored snowfall day.  Also broke the record for the snowiest October and we are only 1/2 way thru the month.  Might there be a connection with the ministry of Climate Change?

Kept a few truck tubes from my short lived, trucking 'career'....

Spruce meadows, indoor show jumping

One of the unique signs at Spruce Meadows

Kayben farms near Okatoks

Home SWEET home :)

Papi Ramon celebrates 94 Abriles

About to turn 10 and Carla gets her ears pierced.  Wonder if there will be any more piercings in her future?  or tatoos?  or???/

Chalk art on the side of our steps....seems someone is making fun of my prostate woes!
