April - Sun, Snow, Surf
April is a good time of year. The sun starts to rise out of the sea in front of our house and the skiing is great. It seems there is suddenly so much light. More than enough light to go down to the beach with the kids after school - or even after dinner. Today the tide was out a bit more than yesterday and we found more beach glass.
When I went skiing at the pass after work there were 2 ladies with beach chairs catching the sun next to their truck with the stereo blasting - 3 or 4 feet of snow all around. But it was baking hot with all the reflected sunlight. I went skate skiing in short sleeves - absolutely perfect conditions. The second from top photo I took today and it is of Pyramid with all the area in between a wonderful terrain park.
About the only sad thing about April is that summer is on the way and the snow now has a limited lifespan.
