Michael and Sara were in town for the holidays and prior to their arrival there had been talk of making a trek up Mount Baker to take a snowboarding lesson... so of course we must follow through! One fine morning the four of us piled into their rental car, swung by Haggen for the necessary sustenance (wheat fig bars, swedish fish, gorp, frozen burritos, poweraid, calzone, coffe, and muffins), and hit the highway. A nauseating car ride later (I don't do well in the back seat of rental cars apparently) we were at the Heather Meadows parking lot and making our way to the Instruction Desk.
To no one's surprise I declined from registering for the Best for Beginners class due to the aformentioned ankle issue. Basically I was there for moral support and to document this moment in pictures. So needless to say I don't have much else to write. I spent the afternoon hanging out in the ski lodge reading The Blind Side by Michael Lewis, the latest Triathlete magazine, and writing these blogs.
