Tabor Mountain Magic

I'm very aware of how long it has been since I've posted here....2012 has been a most unusual year in many ways.  Yesterday, I took Jon and his friends skiing at Tabor Mountain - a lovely way to end off the year.  Although I don't hit the slopes that often, I'm always inspired by the winter beauty around Prince George when I do.  A sampling of what it looked like as the day progressed....

Jon (on the left) and his friends, Spencer and Kyle, had a great day on the hill.  While I couldn't possibly keep up with them, I certainly enjoyed my own slower version of the day.

Water, Water Everywhere

It has been one of the soggiest summers I can remember! Here's a recent view of the Fraser River at Paddlewheel Park.
Cottonwood Island also ended up under water for quite some time.
High water makes for great canoeing though! Jon and Matt really enjoyed floating about 10 miles down the Nechako River yesterday afternoon......

Mt. Robson Hike

We set out with excellent intentions for our five-night hike on Robson with the Laings a few days ago, in spite of rain from the minute we started.....

However, it POURED the whole time, so we had to face reality and come down the mountain. We are anxious to try again when the weather conditions are better! Here is a link to other photos from our 6-day turned 2-day adventure:

Highlights of Hawaiian Cruise

This Banyan tree in Honolulu was an amazing phenomenon. Jon had fun climbing all over this one!
After walking up Diamond Head near Honolulu, here was the view. Wakiki Beach is directly below. I must say, however, that after hiking around PG where we rarely run into a soul, the trail up Diamond Head was rather packed with tourists!
Getting ready for our favorite pastime on the trip - snorkeling with the colorful fish and amazing sea turtles.
Jon had a great time checking out the turtles and swimming in the crashing waves in Maui.
