Yesterday I combined three of my favorite things Weddings, Skiing and Valentine’s Day! Loveland Ski Area hosted their 20th Annual Marry Me & Ski Free Mountaintop Matrimony with 69 couples getting married or renewing their vows at 12,050′ elevation near the Continental Divide at Ptarmigan Roost Cabin.
Click here to see a short slideshow. Our annual 10th Mountain Division hut trip was last weekend. This year we went to Vance’s Cabin near Leadville, Colorado. The trail-head starts in the parking lot at Ski Cooper. I wasn’t able join the group on Friday because of an assignment in Denver so I headed up […]
Geri and I recently spent a long weekend in San Francisco visiting a college and lifelong friend Gregg Foss. Gregg showed us a great time starting with the Henri Cartier-Bresson photo exhibit at SFMOMA followed by lunch in the Mission with Sara Broome, a friend transplanted in the city from Colorado.
The next day we woke up early for a bicycle tour of the city. Gregg’s neighbor Phil joined us for the three hour ride up and down hills through parks, out to the ocean and back to Noe Valley.
We finished off the day going to see a show called Beach Blanket Babylon with another group of friends in North Beach. It was a very funny semi drag show known for it’s giant hats (head pieces) and wigs.
The morning before we flew back to Denver, we got up before sunrise and took Gregg’s dog Jesse for a walk in the park at the top of Bernal Heights. A perfect place to view the sun rising over the east bay. It’s was great to see Gregg getting into shooting pictures with his new LUMIX point and shoot camera with a Leica lens.
Megan and Andrew decided to do their wedding engagement pictures on New Years day in Basalt, Colorado where they both grew up. The only rub was that it was a cold day in the single digits for the high temperature. The sun was out and it wasn’t windy at least. We ended up having a great time wandering around town before going inside for a cup hot coco.
Megan is a long distance runner and running coach. Andrew is a rocket science engineer who I’ve known since he was a little kid shooting off rockets and fireworks in his backyard. They are getting married March 19, 2011 at the Crossroads Church in Aspen with their reception following at the Jerome Hotel.
I can’t wait for their wedding day. It’s going to be a blast doing a winter wedding in Aspen with such a fun couple.
