Schweitzer Ski Resort – Review

I spent the first week of 2008 in northern Idaho at the Stoneridge Resort at Blanchard. One of the closer ski hills is Schweitzer Ski Resort. It is a fantastic little ski hill that claims to be the 3rd best tree skiing in North America. I don’t know if that is true or not, but …

Moscow

My wife and I had the privilege of seeing Moscow for a couple of days in July of 2007. It is a very interesting and a very large city.
