Skiing: I also enjoy the great outdoors even when it's cold!
Something I find I really enjoy doing is going skiing. While I don't always have the time or money to partake of the slopes. I really get a lot of joy out of it. Sometimes, a good ski day can make me happy for months after. Giving me some of my best memories of a year.
Why do I get so much joy from skiing? I would have to say it is because of my dad. He's really the one who got me interested, even at a young age, and we ended up spending lots of time in my youth skiing together. He taught me basically everything I know. With that, there are a lot of fond memories skiing with my dad. His health isn't the best right now, and I often think of him whenever I ski. It is very rewarding. I wonder if he will want his ashes scattered on one of the peaks in Alta. If they would even let it be done. He had a lot of old friends who have influence there.
