Red Lodge Montana

HI! A few weeks ago, while Patrick was in Japan, Cy and I headed out west to Montana. We met Grandma Lynn, Fishpa and Uncle Mike there for a long weekend of skiing. We flew into Billings and then drove up to Red Lodge. It was the perfect small old-school ski town we had been looking for!

 first time ever seeing the mountains!!
 first time skiing the mountains since kids!
 first time skiing the mountains as a 70 year old. Total shredder. Still skied all the black runs.
 deer everywhere
 That's uncle mike. We had a day or two of major snow -- which meant fabulous, dreamy powder skiing -- but pure white out conditions.

 turkeys roamed all over red lodge. They're even up in the trees! Hoards of them

And home again to our big cherry and spoon.
We had a terrific time of course. We rented a house -- and it had a hot tub and we each had our own bedrooms. We were so tired from skiing and cozy inside our house that we never went out to dinner a single time!! After skiing each evening I'd run out, chase deer with my camera and then go grab a few things from the grocery store for dinner.
Cy was a baller. The kid didn't get hung up in the powder at all. He plowed right through it. He was skiing black diamonds too. 5 years old and black diamonds in Montana! Wow, I am a proud mama! There were even people on the chairlift saying "look at that kid!" Seriously. It was awesome.
Such a wonderful trip. I am so glad we had the chance to go!!!
