Skiing deep powder in an aspen forest – January.  Skier: Don Moden.

Colorado, and most of the west for that matter, has been getting pounded by a powerful winter storm these last few days. This last weekend we did a quick trip to Ouray to catch up with some friends and get out for some backcountry powder turns.

Although we were both a bit sad to leave, after two great days of skiing we hightailed it through the blizzard back to Crested Butte, where two feet of powder blanketed the Butte by Monday!

A rare calm reflection in Blue Mesa Reservoir on a cloudy November day, Colorado.

I hopped out of the truck during a road construction stop yesterday to snap this shot during our drive back to Crested Butte after two weeks in the deserts of southern Utah. It was a cold but wonderful road trip, and I will be posting lots of photos in the coming days!
