Mt Bachelor outing

The anticipation of heading to Mt Bachelor in the motor home very relaxed son and relaxed Princess. As you can see there is grandson 2 fingers up. Is that a good thing? wonder if that's like heads up?

And here is Mt Bachelor with very little snow on it ,usually this time of yr it has a lot more snow, with all the lifts going, i think they said they only had one lift running.

Also notice the side of the road, very little snow, the sky was sunny and beautiful which was nice to drive in.

And here is the lodge as you can see not much snow in the parking lot, they have been using the snow machines to make some of the snow for the last few weeks.

Here is Princess having a ball playing in the snow, yup that is her ball, but she was more interested in watching all the kids and the other dogs running around.

Here is son and Grandson going up the hill in the inner tube, but as you can see lots of stumps in the way.

Hudson after taking several bites of snow,what faces he made

Now here he is trying his hand on snowboarding what a great jump he had.My favorite photo of the day.
A great day was had by all, only thing would of been better if there was more snow. And the patrol guy wasn't coming around to chase the kids away from the parking area, cause they wanted to make sure that they got there money for people going on the pay area. I think that patrol guy must of come around about 3 or 4 times and chased everyone away, but that only lasted till he left.

I like the photo with Mt. Bachelor seen through the windshield. We have to drive at least 3 hours before we see snow. Hope the boys had fun, but I could imagine Princess' paws would've been quite cold and would rather stay in her favorite spot inside the RV.

Looks like fun! That's a great action shot you captured of your grandson on the snowboard. I have about a 6-7 photos of my 11 year old niece doing the peace symbol thing, too.

No snow in our mountains, it's been too warm. It's been great while the family has been here, but definite cause for concern.

Maybe Al Gore IS right. Having to use a snow machine on a mountain that size at the end of saying something.

Looks as though the entire family had a wonderful week-end. Keeping it all safe right? The snow boarding too!! :)

I like that last picture also! It looks like it would be lots of fun but I think I'd better pass.
The mountain is beautiful!

The two fingers is saying "PEACE" Now if it was just the middle finger, that would be bad.

Wonderful pictures. I want snow here in Georgia..... in my yard.

Snowcapped mountains make for beautiful contrasts - and you have caught it!

That may not seem like much snow to you, Lilli, but I have a feeling it's more than I'll see all winter, in Atlanta OR in Amsterdam combined! Guess I'll have to get my "fix" from you! Thanks for sharing the fun!

Hello again, Lilli
Hope you don't mind me asking but could you tell me how I publish a list of the blogs that I like? I've looked in the help page but I can't find anything in there or maybe I'm not looking properly.I'd be very grateful if you could help me out on this.
