So many, many highs!

This was an incredible High! Watching hopeful Olympians practice downhill skiing into a pool at Lake Placid, NY.


video

In case the video doesn't play, I hope this photo will give you an idea of the height. We held our breath every time!

Here is one guy right after he crawled up the ladder and out of the water. Can you imagine wearing all of that clothing and swimming?

Lou was so brave to ride up the ski lift to see where the Olympian skiers take off.

She admits that the view was worth it!

Although it did take our breath away!

Here we are nearly on top of the world.

Later, Lou and I rode on the top level of the ferry on our ride across Lake Champlain.

We may not come back down to earth for a long time.


The air is a little thin at these heights. Here's hoping that it rubs off on us.

Brenda, you really got some nice photo's. I loved them. My husband and I spent 2 days in Lake Placid in 1984 and I loved it there.
Have a great Tuesday....:-) Hugs

It must be quite chilly! I see the jackets. I'm SO jealous.

I love the last line of commentary on this post. It wasn't lost on me.

Hello to all of you. How could you NOT have a wonderful, wonderful time?!
