When we started this trip –
We had certain places to be and see –
the unexpected were add on’s !
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 !
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 !
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 !
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 !
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 –
They were told the snow finally left sometime in July –
but they could still see patches of it !
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 !
Buck and I stayed down in The Village –
sipping coffee from Starbucks –
we waited and waited –
and then they came
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 !
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 !
