Maui’s Pu’u Kukui volcanic mountain summit is your dinner ocean view at sunset
Who wouldn’t love a dinner setting like this right about now? Most of us are craving a nice meal out with friends and no masks. Happy to have this photo to remind us of what is not too far off once again. Wish I could say this was our dinner spot back in 2018, but alas, we walked past this wonderful table for 6 as we made our way to another location. No complaining allowed… it was warm, the food good, and we were having fun as a family.
Sunrise after 7am on morning #1 of what we were hoping to be a 6 day ski trip with family. The conditions on this first day were even better than the sunrise – clear and sunny, -5 deg C, great snow – and so we thought far away from the COVID-19 developments occurring back home. Day 2 (another amazing day outdoors) ended with a thud when Big White announced it was closing immediately and we had to clear out. Now that’s a shocker! This was the same day provinces implemented limitations of groups greater than 50 people. In hind sight a week on now, it was the right thing as we all needed to get home and hunker down.
Flying over Kauai’s Lihue-Koloa Forest Reserve in a helicopter an hour or so after sunrise, fortunate to capture these wonderful yellow and purple streaks of light and shadows across the mountain range.
The view back up ‘Village Way’ ski run with peak of Big White Mountain in background, and high alpine skiable terrain. Highly recommend this back country mountain on the border of the Kootenay region British Columbia, for the pure fun of skiing.
Saturday February 13 will be known as the coldest winter day of 2016 at -32 C. and a wind chill pushing -40 C. It snowed all day with blowing winds and poor visibility, keeping us indoors for the day (except for the mandatory after hours hot tub and whisky). Sunday was picture perfect sunshine and awesome powder skiing.
