|charmers on the Rail Trail ~ these two had everyone fooled!|
number two: Outdoor Retailers' trade show. although i've lived in Salt Lake City for twenty years (!) i had never actually been to the show. thanks to my friends at Vasque Footwear for giving me the green light to attend. i promise, i will not let you down with my reviews of shoes this summer! on Saturday, i met up with my friend Kyle, whom i have known since kindergarten in Michigan, but hadn't seen in about twenty years (since high school). wow, i swear he hasn't changed a bit. it was great to cruise around to the booths, talk with like-minded folks, and catch up with my childhood friend who has been so generous to me in getting me lined up with Vasque trail running shoes. i returned on Sunday to bam-schmoozle a few more retailers and get some pro-deals.
|beautiful afternoon in the Silver Summit valley.|
|we were all smiles today ~ lucky.|
tomorrow i will cruise back to Tonopah for another 3 days of work at the hospital. i'll probably try to stop by Ward Mountain in Ely on the way, weather permitting (last time it was actually too warm to skate ski there and i post-holed for all of 5 minutes before calling the dogs back to the car). next weekend i have good friends in town from New York (state) for skiing at Brighton and dining at Red Iguana. honestly... how did i get so lucky?
