I truly feel sorry for you. You must be so depressed not being able to ski!
Now THIS is winter! (~1 yr ago)

OH My, what an inconvienance. Do you have a snowplow attachement for the 108? Actually, there is skiing in the mountains behind us.....not great but it is there a bit later in the winter. Those "hills" go up to ~9500 ft.

Litton: Actually the tractor in the background had a 36" blower attatched to the front of it (it may have been 42" at that time before we replaced it - it utterly failed due to rust and meeting a large rock - a driveway that long isn't paved ). Also, that was taken before it was really repaired to the state it's in now - it was running at that time I believe, but not too well.

Paul: I would, but she might be offended if I called her "Boy"! She was about 1 year old in that picture (18 months?). She's grown since then, but still loves pushing the snow with her nose - when she comes in from a walk her beard is covered with snow! (airedale terriers have beards, even females...).

We've since moved out of that house in Bear Creek. I think you can see why - if I recall correctly, these pics were taken (on the same day) before Thanksgiving (scans of the actual pics were entered on Dec 12th last year). How would you like driving a 108 up and down this driveway? (After the left hand turn you can partially see, it goes down a rather steep hill, where you MUST make a left hand turn or drop 20' down an embankment into the creek below... then it goes out to the road from there - my dad estimated it at 600' in length, but I believe it was a bit longer).
