I LOVE to ski...
If you like to ski, & I do, Utah is the place to be. We have the greatest Snow on Earth!
I ski the Bird (www.Snowbird.com), which is only 11 miles from our front door! So on a good day I can leave the house and be skiing within 30 minutes. (It takes longer to get to work! go-figure!). In a good year we'll get well over 500" of snow! and the ski season can begin as early as November and go through May, its not uncommon to be able to ski on the 4th July, in Jean shorts and a t-shirt!

I enjoy many aspects of photography but in particular I enjoy shooting animals and nature and Utah�s mountain ranges provide plenty of opportunities to shoot both. I AM currently using a Canon 10D digital camera complete with a 28-135 IS USM and 70-300 IS USM lens. And if disk space was ever an issue with my old Sony, the Canon has only exemplified the problem. The Canon 10D is a full featured 6.13-mega pixel, digital SLR. and will shoot 3fps. I can highly recommend this camera it is fast, accurate and durable. A full review of the 10D can be found at http://www.dpreview.com

 Fun to ride in the sun.
2004 Kawasaki Z1000
I enjoy riding my Kawasaki Z1000 and Utah�s dry and warm summer whether provides the ideal climate for long motorbike rides into the mountains, although Utah drivers are to be avoided at ALL costs.......... As fall sets in and the snow begin to accumulate on the tops of the mountains its time to set the bike aside and wax the skis... THINK SNOW!
