2011 Summer Vacation Roundup

We're back from an EPIC vacation in California. For the last 10 days, we've been skiing, running, mountain biking, and hot-tubbing from Lake Tahoe to Mammoth Lakes.

I have about 400 photos in my picasa galleries, so I'll put the highlights here and link to the full galleries if you are interested in checking them out.

We had incredible weather and completely took advantage... skiing 8 straight days (including some STEEP lines on Mt Tallac and Ellery Bowl)... between running/skiing/biking, I estimated the total vertical gain at around 35,000 feet. So... we earned all the ice cream we ate (and somehow still each lost several percentage points of body weight... ridiculous)! I only ran ~10-11 miles per day the trip, but w/ the altitude (6200-9300 feet) and all the additional activities, it felt like the volume of a 150 mile week!

Here are all of the 2011 Summer Vacation Links, organized by the primary areas we visited:

Click on those links to see more pictures and descriptions of our adventures in those areas. On the last day, I also jumped in a road race: Mammoth Lakes Freedom Mile

Some highlights...

Now THAT is what I call a vacation!
