Skiing in Oregon

Today, I enjoyed some skiing under the watchful peak of Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood dominates the skyline of any panorama that it’s in. Here’s a pic to prove my point:

The clouds were nagging at the summit the whole way to the mountain and by the time we got up there, it was gone. No matter, the views we had were plenty good.

But, that’s not what this post is about. It’s not about how much lower Mt. Hood is than Aspen, CO, where I also ski. The problem with that area is that it is so high above sea level that it’s downright hard to breath if you’re not used to it. And, I’m not.

This all just meant that I could breath better in Oregon. I won’t go into too much detail about that because this post is really about dry air. Aspen has really dry air, but it gets pretty dry up near the summit on Mt. Hood, too. When I got back to the house, a soak in the tub sounded like the perfect thing.

Of course, that could mess up my skin worse. Good thing we’ve got some Gritty Soap! ;-p
