The Winter Blast is Over

Winter Blast 2013 is finally behind us. Yesterday was Blowing the Dog Off The Chain Windy, but it was warmer.  According to Chuck the weather guy we had down slope winds, which were out of the east.  Whatever, it's not so dang cold anymore.
While it was cold, it was at least sunny.  This is from a hike we did in the Starr Pass area 2 or 3 days ago.  The days are running together again, I can generally tell you the day of the week, but frequently am not sure of what week of the month it is.  It's sad when your brain gets this mushy.  But I digress.

Wednesday we went up the Cat Mountain trail again, it's a very pleasant hike.  It looks to me like it would be terrible mountain biking, but this young man made it look easy. Here is is climbing up a boulder with panache.

I did not catch him in the act, but he's about to clean this boulder, as well.  He did have to unclip on some of the rocks and dab; but still he had impressive clearance rates.  I see this and always wonder how did they learn to do this? 

Today appears to be better, it's still cool at 9:30 in the morning, but the winds have died and happy we are about that.
Other than this maties, I have zippity doo-dah all to report.
