I had the opportunity to go on a business trip for a press check up into Montreal. While I was there I looked up what the city is known for and tried to make the best of my limited time there.
Then there is the beautiful Roman Catholic church which was started in 1823 called the Notre-Dame Basilica. This has been classified as a National Historic Site of Canada. The architecture and beauty was outstanding.
Overall I loved the French Canadians and how I was treated everywhere. The experience was great and I would return to Montreal for a visit.
Holiday Valley NY
Last moment, I'm up visiting my parents and then we are in NY skiing! It's COLD, even dressed properly, I'm freezing.
Sunset 30,000 feet up in the sky.
Landing in the snow! Fun day to be a pilot.
I have 3 siblings and you would guess from the luggage, that they were with us. Nope, this here is for 3 people and 3 days. Glad my mother was in charge, otherwise I would have gone hungry and cold.
Waking up to the fresh snowfall and the 20 degree temps.
Holiday Valley Resort, New York
Here is a happy mother. The pictures were taken with a GoPro and they do not do the area justice at all. It was absolutely beautiful and cold.
Here is a picture of my Dad, with the beautiful snow covered trees behind him. Again, the go pro didn't even come close to capturing how pretty it actually was.
Thanks to my parents bringing the supplies, I stayed semi warm!
These little guys were shoved into my gloves and were a tremendous help.
My parents and their friends.
Leaving Holiday Valley in NY. Beautiful Snowfall and very cold weather.
Photo Class at Fort Desoto
Groupon had an offer for an outdoor photo workshop which I thought was an awesome idea. Little did I know that classes were offered during the week and before sunrise. It gave me a chance to take the day off and head down to Fort Desoto to enjoy the scenery. The class instructor was Jason Hahn whom specializes in nature photography. Below are a few of the images that I took that morning.
Seawall around the fort that is beginning to show it's age.
This little guy here had no fear and was just hanging out.
Blue Heron hanging out letting a group of people take pictures.
Owl in the trees. Apparently there are some young ones near by too, but I was in a rush to get to the airport, and did not stick around very long.
No matter the conquences, our dog is just bad and he knows it. I set aside two cookies for a coworker. Chris and I left the house for maybe an hour. Cel got onto the counter and ate the cookies. Then yesterday while Chris drove me to the airport, Cel got into the garbage. For months he has been good, and now we are back to this behavior.
