Currently, my second favourite Office View.
Feeling like summer is over.
Los Angeles again for another PDC, and some more hotel room views.
Windows 7; Azure; Silverlight 4; Office 2010. What’s in a name?
With a big breakie at Paradise Inn behind us and the boys safely off with grandparents it was onwards & upwards for us.
We left the guide service hut and dirty snow at Paradise behind…
…and climbed up along the western side of Alta Vista through Paradise Park
The trail led up through the snow – a different route from Camp Muir last July – and was helpfully signed to avoid embarrassing falls down step slopes.
The view from Panorama Point was amazing, with Alta Vista, Mazama Ridge and then Mounts Adams, St Helens and (just visible) Hood on the horizon.
Mount Adams (from last years’ escapade)
Mount St Helens (not as much as there once was)
We even had some company for lunch
The way down was fun: steep and slippery. Fay tried plunge stepping before giving in to the charms of glissading (at which she was too fast for me to get a pic).
Wide brimmed hat = no/little sun burn
Kuhl cap & no hair = red ring of embarrassment next day in the office
Some more pics on the way down and then a well deserved drink back at the Paradise Inn.
The view of, and from, the new home office – the trees are in the front garden, and the sunlight is from a big yellow fiery ball that does a circuit across the sky each day (or at least has each day that we’ve been here).
I’m trying to get the room as organised and permanant-feeling as possible before Fay decides it would make a nice studio ;-)
