If I can’t be in Truckee…

…I guess this is OK-

Although I’ve been dying to be skiing in Truckee, I’m still getting the most out of the beautiful fall foliage in Maine. All the roads from my house were paved recently so rollerskiing is bliss, especially since there is a fantastic, hilly road that goes forever with continuous views of the ocean. Last week, I led a hiking trip in Acadia National Park and the foliage was in full force, as were the sunny skies and crashing Ocean waves, which made me almost want to like salt water…but not quite. However, life could be worse. I’m still working at the Chewonki Foundation and teaching kids outdoor living skills which has been wonderful…mostly. But I’m anxiously awaiting the day I can pack up my Subaru, vote at the polls, and head west to join all of you in Truckee. I just hope the snow doesn’t disappear in the interim. Ski some Ks for me!
