April 14, 2012 Green Spring Gardens

The Capitol Hill Garden Club had a docent led tour of the gardens and house at Green Spring Garden.   What a hidden treasure this place is.  It is located on Braddock, near Little River Turnpike.  The Potomac Valley Watercolorists will be having their spring show there May 1 - June 25, 2012.  What a beautiful venue.

Party Night at Springmaid

Students get to display their art on Friday evening.  We had a wonderful buffet, cocktails and dancing, surrounded by beautiful art.  Bob was the most handsome artist there.

Centro Medico Teknon

Bye bye hospital.  Thank you for the excellent care.  I love being able to breath easily again and have much of my energy back.

Bob's new wheels.  This is an old snow grooming vehicles.

Dang it's cold

It was sooooo cold and windy when we got off the  gondola, -12 celcius.  We took one long run amd thenn called it a day and rode back down to our town,  Canillo. 

Taking a rest from the wind on Rosignol trail, over 20 kilometers long.
