Let it Snow

The Devil Dog hopes all of you had a wonderful Boxing Day.  In the spirit of Christmas, and with memories of Heliskiing in Telluride in my head, the Devil Dog hopes all of you embrace the joy of the holiday season by remembering that they have had 5 feet of snow in parts of the Rockies the last several days.  Heliskiing is one of the most exciting and terrifying experiences of my life.  The picture above is taken at the summit of one of our stops as the helicoptor takes off, leaving us at 14000 feet at the top of a mountain.  Thats the Dog himself in the photo below, ski equipment in the snow, and the wicked peaks of backcountry Telluride all around us.  

And theres only one way down.  Merry Christmas.
