Anxious to burn off some holiday calories, Lucy and I used the promise of this winter's coldest storm (so far) to entice our friends Galen and Alyson into driving to southern Oregon from Reno for a ski tour at Crater Lake's Garfield Peak on December 28.
I don't have time to write much (and, frankly, this blog has featured plenty of write-ups on Garfield Peak), so for now I'll leave you with a few photos. Enjoy...
