Ann,You should bump up your Amazon link for us late shoppers. Like the Salvation Army ringer outside the grocery store, we need a reminder to leave a decent donation.

Owen Park, nicely groomed for skiing.
Owen Park, so slick and steep it scared the bejeezus out of me.
*dusts snow off of bejeezus*Here, did you lose this?
We can't see you out skiing. But we know that you are there.
Austere. Is that East Berlin?
Meade said...Owen Park, nicely groomed for skiing.Hey I know that pose. I recognize the field, which you can see from the Capitol. Looking back from the Capitol (or some of the University buildings) you can see a little notch which is Old Sauk Road as it crests the hill to the left of where you were standing in that photo. The land/estate was privately owned up until the 1970's. I dated a girl who grew up around there and used to play on the farm.Did you find the suicide ski run with the skimpy bridge?

I recall skiing there once during a heavy snowstorm. Of course there was that dead silence unique to snowstorms and it was almost dark. At the bottom of the park, on the left, was a group of trees surrounding the trail that made sort of a tunnel as I glided around to the right clockwise. The trees were so laden with new snow that I had to lean around the boughs going through to avoid getting a faceful of snow.
And of course I was cutting a new trail.
Another Althouse Christmas card.Very nice.Meade said...*dusts snow off of bejeezus*Here, did you lose this?A lot of guys would like to dust off Ann's bejeezus.But only Meade is allowed to.
