Sure it may be cold (not intolerable, mind you) in our neck of the woods, but I defy any one of my blog readers to find any sight so lovely as that in the first photo. And this hill which we tubed down was pretty much in our back yard. We would have walked there if we hadn't needed to get tubes and other gear before we embarked on our tubing outing. Yep -eat your hearts out with jealousy! :D hahaha
p.s. Pretty awesome photo of Dietrich's face plant, eh? Nice thing was it didn't upset him in the slightest. He just kept on going down the hill, and still solo. What a guy!
