Sledding: Semi-Controlled Chaos
Photo by Anthony Friedl

So, after some recuperation at lunch during last-weekend's visit to Makino Ski with Anthony, we went back for some more sledding. Anthony took the photo above as I zipped past on a world-record run.

One comment so far...

Does Anthony not find the camera+lens on the heavy side? In any case, “Sledding: Semi-Controlled Chaos” & “Daddy Trudging Up Hill” are rather interesting: first for the facial expression. Second shows trudging well, not to mention left side has only the vegetation & people form a line bottom right to the center.

“Thankful for the Goggles” reminds me of my own red ears in past cold winters during|after snow shoveling.
