Last weekend Geri and I participate in the annual 10th Mountain Division trip to the Betty Bear Hut above the Frying Pan Wilderness area near Basalt, Colorado. It was a long and hard (almost) 7-mile ski and/or snowshoe up to the cabin at 11,020 feet in elevation. The weather was unbelievably beautiful, snowing most of the weekend with sunlight filtering through the snow and clouds from time to time.

My friend and fellow photographer Steve Peterson, joined our group this year adding not only some great images, but he also turned out to be a talented wood chopper! Rosie, our travel agent friend from Carbondale, who is also a trained chef, planned an amazing group dinner for Saturday night including Filet Mignon with a wild mushroom reduction sauce, couscous with sundried tomatoes, and a side of Green Bean Almondine. For dessert we baked chocolate chip cookies in the wood-burning oven while we played card games.

Cheers, Kent

There are few things more fun in the middle of winter in Colorado than a warm beach vacation. We recently spent a week visiting our friends Cindy and Dan who rented a hillside villa in Sayulita, Mexico, to celebrate Cindy’s new job. The villa was named Casa Quetzal, after a cool bird with long tail feathers, that flies by in a flock every morning. Sayulita is a small village of about 4,000 people 25 miles north of Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast. It’s the crown jewel of the newly designated “Riviera Nayarit”.

Happy 4th of July! This was the first weekend I haven’t had a wedding to photograph since April! I made the most out of it going ski mountaineering climbing Coon Hill at 12,757 feet elevation. We were able to skin up to the summit as well as ski down along a cornice ridge passing a herd of mountain goats on Friday. Sat, we went for a 28 mile bike ride that included Lookout Mountain and Mother Cabrini Shrine. Sunday we watch the Tour de France, the men’s final of the Wimbledon, and fireworks with the Colorado Symphony in Civic Center Park with about 25,000 of our closest friends. Today we broke out our new Big Green Egg, grill/smoker, to cook baby back ribs.

Cheers to a free world, Kent
