Too "Up Close And Personal"...

We have the Outdoor Blogger Network to thank for today's photo prompt.  I'm going to take a slightly different angle on this prompt.  We are supposed to post up a picture of some little object that perhaps no one gives much thought to when we are walking past.  How about a big object?  Like a tree???!!!   I got a little too "up close and personal" with this tree...Helmets are good things.  The adventurer and skiing enthusiast that I am, went a little bit too fast down through the trees at Deer Valley.  My friends thought it was hilarious because they are always telling me to slow down.  The picture that I can't find unfortunately, is after they took this one of me, they took branches off the tree and stuffed "antlers" in my helmet!  Ha!  I wore them all the way down the mountain..."Powdergirl" as I'm called in the winter, always has to be the life of the party...                                                            


                                                MY SKIIS !! standing upright...


                       No, Owl...I'm never getting rid of the yellow pants...they are who I am! 

                I'm feeling the summer ending...could the fall and winter be around the corner???!!!!


  1. You look like a fire hydrant. :)

  2. I think that the Owl needs some sleep!

  3. out for those trees!!!

    Haven't skied in a while, but my flies sure like to find themselves in any tree that happens to be behind me...ha!

  4. Ouch RD! I'd say you got up close and personal with that tree, but I'm glad it turned out to be a good memory.
    Yet another reason I gave up skiing a long time ago---trees in my way =)

  5. Sanders ~ I'm sure you can join me in the Cofisher Club of Tangled Lines...Trees are my nemesis too!!

    Rebecca ~ There is a safer way to ski...just have to stay on the "groomers"...But, I tend to get a little too adventurous!
