Where do you find Peace?
For us, its off the beaten track. In winter, when the snow is stacked. While we're skiing and there's dangerous avalanche conditions, we find ourselves in mellow terrain. It really emphasizes why we go out: to commune in the mountains. Its not about the steeps, its about getting out there and finding some peace and joy. Although we always look for the thrills as well...
|Thrills with seeing what we normally don't see.|
|Thrills of palling around with friends in amazing country|
|"You ever hear the one about the goat heads?"|
|The avalanche path shows us the possibilities.|
|The blood flows and sweat pours, and we sense that our body and mind are connected, our movements directed, and our lives injected with real experience. That's an alliteration case you didn't catch it.|
|We find peace in the mountains. Nirvana.|
|And, then, we ski.|
