Papa’s World – Squaw Valley- The adventure continues

Good Morning

When we started this trip –

We had certain places to be and see –

the unexpected were add on’s !

SQUAW VALLEY
The Village

We never even thought of this until we saw the sign while slowly driving !

So – we decided why not and took the left hand turn

And so glad we did !

The village

You see the village – but what you do not see until you get in there –

Is the tram that goes up thousands of feet –

to the semi base of the mountain

where all the action took place !

The tram to the top –
first of three leg
The Village Square

Now – I have a problem or fear of heights –

I do not like tall buildings –

I will not walk close to a drop off –

nor will I climb up high –

So you can guess I am not doing this !

The tram going up

But – the girls talked one another into doing it !

I am glad they did –

because they brought back awesome pictures

of the Olympic Ski Slopes of Squaw valley –

8000 to 10,000 feet up and beyond that mountain !

The second loop

Once they broke the top of the mountain we could see –

It continued up and over two more times –

coming to a plateau – where the facilities where –

and above that – the ski slopes –

There was still snow up there

They were told the snow finally left sometime in July –

but they could still see patches of it !

at the platform at the top for the tram

This is where they were told – they ski for six months of the year !

Everything they saw up there would be completely covered

under feet of snow – including the buildings !

They get over 36 feet of snow up there !

I would rather do this than ride to the top on that !!!!

Buck and I stayed down in The Village –

sipping coffee from Starbucks –

we waited and waited –

and then they came

They did it

They were giddy and so excited –

Sherry admitted that once up there

she had to restrain herself when walking around

they were so high up there –

not Cindy – she hurried around taking pictures

unafraid – living life to the plus !

Sherry and Cindy

They had crossed one off a bucket list that they did not expect !

Buck and I were content –

after all – having a Starbucks coffee in Squaw Valley Village

wasn’t expected either !
