cross-country skiing - the practice round.

outdoor adventure class - we practiced for our cross-country ski overnight trip that is next weekend. I told my professor that this was more like ice-skating with cross-country ski's on. He agreed. The snow is horrible! Let's hope the snow is different up in Idaho next weekend...

snow shoeing.

For my outdoor adventure class we went snow shoeing! I had never been before and I absolutely loved it!

I convinced my friend Shane to take the outdoor adventure class with me...cause we all know adventures are better with friends.

the year of adventures [it's just the beginning]

I have decided that this year is going to be full of adventures! Even more so than last year...which was by far one of the most adventure filled years I have had. Bring it on 2011!

So far this year I have traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was there for 36 hours and was in meetings for 14 of those hours. I was outside in the cold, freezing air for a maximum of 1 minute...and that might be stretching it. Yay for airport/hotel shuttles! This was my very first time having a hotel room all to my self! I even had a king size bed!
