Bianca, Fiona, Bob, Jerry, Jim and I met at Santiam Sno-Park for a Saturday ski. It was quite cold and foggy. This, paired with the burned out forest created a bit of an eerie feel at times, though it was quite beautiful. We toured up the Skyline Trail in search of Joy Lake, though the fog was prohibitive. Bob and Bianca led Fiona and I to their “playground” on the way down. We trekked up the slope and back down a few times, which was quite fun. The sun even came out to greet us for a few moments. Overall, it was a great day of skiing. Joy Lake eluded us, but we will have to seek her out on a sunnier day.
