I have found out, that unlike my heart, my skin is extremely sensitive. I have lived the majority of my life in North Dakota, where the extreme winter conditions seem to last the majority of the year. I happen to be very familiar with snow, ice, and cold.
In an effort to better tolerate, and to promote happiness in these conditions, my husband and I moved to Colorado. Now, I cannot get enough fresh powder to fall on the ski slopes of Vail. Even in the summer it is easy to escape the city heat and find cooler temperatures in the higher elevations while backpacking in the mountains.
