Hey guys! I'm back after a long hiatus, and boy do I have a lot to catch up on.  To get the inertia swinging in the right direction, I thought I would do a quick post full of mostly photos because I'm going through serious Winter Olympic withdrawl right now.  Of the two seasons of Olympic games, winter is my favorite.  To be more specific, anything with skiing on a slope is my favorite: slopestyle, halfpipe, aerials, moguls, big air, downhill, super g, slalom, combined, ski jump, etc. I had the pleasure to catch some of the qualifying action for the men's freeski halfpipe this winter season before the team left for South Korea.  I'm telling you, if you haven't seen a halfpipe event live, you don't know what you are missing!  Everything about the experience is impressive, but there's nothing like when you're standing on the side of the pipe and your location is perfectly timed for a skier's big trick out of the pipe, where the he is getting huge amplitude and twisting right in front of you. 

Of course, I took my camera with me to the pipe the day I went and got some really fun action shots of the guys. All four of the US freeski halfpipe team members were part of the competition: David Wise, Torin Yater-Wallace, Alex Ferreira, and Aaron Blunk. My favorite photos from the day are below. 
And now that this blogging ball is blog rolling again, I've got a few catch up posts I need to write from 2017 adventures (and some photo edits), then I will hopefully be positioned to get 2018 going strong, albeit a couple of months tardy.  Get ready for some lava, some kiwis, some desert, some more Legos, and a little bit (or a lot) of Potter coming soon!
