Those might be K2 Sodos, but my guess is Shuksans. In which case he's a randonee skier. Randonee is roughly how the French pronounce 'can't tele.'

Dave, I find your lack of faith disturbing

I am on 2007 K2 Work Stinx, sporting the Black Diamond (EDIT:O1) bindings. Scarpa T1 boots, I love the setup! Freeheeling only makes this experience that much better!

Thanks guys, yes there are times when it's fun to be down here, but not a day goes by that I don't wish that I was home with my

Nice sticks. Really I'm just jealous... Still rocking my very old (1999) 2-buckle T2 boots. But I am lucky to have two pairs of skis, 2003 Tua Nitrogens with G3 Targa bindings and my new 2009 Icelantics Pilgrims with Voile Hardwires. I'm too dense to know better so I never learned to ski in bondage gear, always telemarked. Truth is if someone would have turned me on to AT gear back in 1999 I probably would not have never known the joy.

Wanted to add the "Omega Bridge" that I get a clear view of on my way home from skiing...just a neat structure.

Matt,

I hope LANL is treating you well.

I was down there in 2000 and then again in 2002.

I sure do miss it at times.

We would swim in the morning (highest elevation olympic pool in the US) and then go out for coffee and breakfast burritos. I can still remember cold morning air, scorching black coffee, hot green chile and pure sun-shine...

Enjoy it man, you will be ruined for city living after this!

well as the weather starts to warm up around here there's been some good trail exploring to do! There are TONS of trails around here, tomorrow going to take the bike for a spin and see how many miles I can cover before it's starts melting up higher and I bring the motorbike down! Anyway, some pics from the Tsankawi Ruin trail of Bandelier National Monument (this is about 10 minutes from work, maybe less).

One more; there are remains of the Pueblo on top of the mesa, nothing more than a slightly visible rim of rocks now scattered among the brush. But on the side of the mesa there are these cavates which are hewn into the soft rock called "tuff" (solidified ash from the ancient volcanic activity in the area). They were used for living quarters, food storage, etc. There are some pottery shards scattered about, as well as some petroglyph and pictograph panels in the area. Not bad for an afternoon hike after work.

Subzali,
How long of a drive from Santa Fe? My inlaws have a home in Las Campanas and I should take the wife and check that area out sometime? Looks fun.
