Hiking to Copper Lake

It was a lovely, warm, September day. Does Colin look like he is enjoying his swim? It was like ice! I went in too, but only for about 15 seconds and I don't think I breathed the whole time. it sure felt refreshing once we got out.

Chili Cook Off 2007

Well, it finally happened. The first rainy Chili Cook Off. But it didn’t dampen the spirits of the chili lovers who came (at least 75, maybe 100) - except for Frodo, Mark and Janet's dog. As usual, we had some very creative and wonderfully spicy chilis. As usual, I sampled each and every one. As usual, we had some of the same winners; most of the people who won had won before. But we had a couple of new winners, including Celia and Keith, who captured First Place Mild with their Brazilian black bean chili.
