Walking in a Winter Wonderland ...

Hey all ... I'm taking my first proper vacation in quite a long time. Hyun and I just got back from a pretty big ski resort about 2 hours from Seoul. It was pretty nice ... esp. playing in the snow and going skiing. It was only my second time going skiing and it was nice to remember how not to fall down too =) I think it was about 12 years since the last time I skied ... and that first time was with my very own "Midwest Ski Patrol" too =)

The first picture is of me and Hyun at the peak height of the resort ... over 5100 meters high ... and the second picture shows the resort in all it's snow-covered glory =P I love playing in the snow ... but am glad I don't have to drive in it or plow it anymore! And the third picture showed the beautiful mountains of that area. I was hoping you could see more of the clouds and midst hovering over all the mountains ... it was very breath-taking.

I believe we're planning a ski trip this July for our New Life family, so get ready Sydney! I'm ready to conquer the bunny hills of one more country =) Ha ha!

Thanks Danni ... I like that photo too:)

Thanks Mins ... I think I get what you were trying to say! :P

Thanks a lot Bob!! I believe we were in that tube together (!) ... but sadly I was the one who suffered from our arms being interlocked together, and you had the pleasure of using my face as your brakes down that hill :P Ha ha! But what I still don't get is how Oogie managed to do that all by himself though :P Well ... it made for a good skit at the retreat though, eh? "Rocky Gets Saved" hee hee ...

Oh and BTW, 5100 meters is a bit over 16,700 feet :)
