Into Thin Air

This scene from mid-mountain Pine Martin Lodge at Mt Bachelor Resort near Bend, Oregon, seems like an apt picture for Skywatch Friday. Join me for a moment on this balcony, feel the cool fresh air in your lungs and let your eyes take you to the horizon. Great! Now I suppose you wonder how you're going to get down the mountain. Well, you can always slide on your butt!

I love it!! Fantastic shot! And beautiful as only Oregon can be! And I like the idea of sliding down the mountain on my butt! My knees would greatly appreciate the fact I wasn't depending on them and skis!

Have a great weekend, Lee!

Sylvia: I'd end up sliding down the mountain on my butt no matter how I started out!

Lee: That's a breathtaking view...looking at makes me feel almost like I'm on that balcony.

Now excuse me, but sliding down on a sleigh is the best thing I can imagine doing.

Still snowing steadily here.

That might be the only way for me to get down.

Having tried it a few times on skiis (the bunny slope, not this one!), I know I'd also be coming down lying or sitting, not standing! Although the few seconds of standing was glorious.

I forgot to say, it is gorgeous from up there, so thanks for posting this. I also see the other way down - the chair lift :) Looks like a nice ride.
