It was a perfect day at Hoodoo Ski Resort today!
A snow boarder took this shot with Three Fingered Jack in the background.

This shot shows Three Fingered Jack and Mt. Jefferson. The sky was so blue!

They have a very nice lodge at Hoodoo Ski Resort.

One of the groomer machines was getting the runs ready just before they opened.

I rode up to the hill on the Hoodoo employee bus for $3. Not too bad! The bus left at 7:10 a.m., and we were up at the lodge before 8:00. It gave me some time to relax, enjoy a cup of Hot Chocolate, and get my ski boots on before the lifts started up at 9:00.

I was very surprised to see so few people there for as nice of day as it was. There were no lines and the runs were not very busy at all.

Happy New Year, everyone!

It's turning out to be a GREAT Year, and I'm loving my new life here in Sisters, Oregon. It's hard for me to believe that it was a WHOLE YEAR AGO when I was just getting started on my 5,000 mile trek!

Here's some very important news ... I finally have a local phone number! Please up-date your records to show my new phone number: 541-549-1339. I hope you'll call me or send me a text message ... I always enjoy hearing from friends!

I took this shot at the end of November. I was about 2 miles from my house, looking up at the Three Sisters.

Right before Christmas, 2008, we had a very nice snow storm here in town. Most of the snow is gone, but I'm sure we will have more before the winter is over!
