Another quick one...
I am in another half hour break...like the third of the week!
They still are keeping us running around like crazy...lots of chanting, yelling, cheering, etc.
Yesterday we did a kayak and white water raft with some class 2 and 3 rapids, so nothing too crazy. Our guide is on a pro rafting team (I didn't know they existed)...anyway his girlfriend is good friends with a helicopter bike tour owner. I was like...um yeah, I would be interested if you guys are going up...normally $200, maybe I could get a deal. Also, he gave me the low down on some of the best single track around here.
Today we get to "learn" how to mountain bike, and it is about 50 degrees with a chance of precip. It is snowing the top of the Remarkables this morning. Oh, and I forgot my knee warmers..dooh!
In closing, I found out a few things about the Lord of the Rings for you fans out there. Mordor is the Remarkables, so I guess I was at the very peak of Mordor. The river we went down yesterday was used for all the river scenes. I was trying to look up more of the sites, but lack the time.
Until next time....one more good pic

Brendan you fool, there is no top of mordor. It is an area surounded by mountains like the one pictured and if there was a so called top of mordor, it would be Mount Doom and that was computor generated. And I don't know if your keeping up with the olympics, but america has moved up to second place in the medal standings. This is good!

Wussy,
I am sorry for the mis-statement...The Remarkables are the "mountains of Mordor"...I am gonna work you when I get back.

Julie, you and Bob need to come down here and spend some time. You would both love it.
