June 29, 2012. The weather has been a constant 100+ degrees in Denver over the last five days and I am on my way to go skiing. I can’t wait to feel the cool, crisp air on my face again. The past couple of months have been perfect for enjoying all the summer activities that Colorado is known for: hiking, biking, running, and summer festivals. However, my passion is skiing, and I am about to go do my favorite activity; and in the middle of summer! Needless to say, I am very excited!
As I walk through Denver International Airport to get on a flight to LAX with a ski helmet strapped to the outside of my carry on I can’t help but notice the puzzled looks that I get from everyone I pass. The expressions ranged from, “What is she doing with a ski helmet?” to “She must be going somewhere really fun!” As I stroll through the terminal with a smile from ear to ear I know that in less than 24 hours I will be ripping turns in Chile.
