We are heading off to the mountains this afternoon for a couple of days. No big plans, just a little get-away. We are going a little too late in the year to see the fall colors, but the mountains are beautiful at any time of the year.
Our mountains have had a lot of snow this week, the first big snowfalls of the season. I'm not a big fan of snow when it is piled up in my driveway, but fresh mountain snow is a beautiful sight to see.
A few ski areas have opened already, but since I don't yet have my legs in shape for the slopes (hahahaha, like that'll happen) I expect we will pass on that. I skied only once last year and I think I am still sore.
Since I'll be with Doc, who, shall we say, is not averse to a little gambling from time to time, I am sure we will spend time in one of our mountain casino towns. I will have to remember to pack my leopard capris.
Whatever we do, I'm looking forward to a few days away.
I hope I come back ready for work next week, if not tanned, at least rested and ready.
