Last week, Troy and I enjoyed the lunar eclipse from Sandia Peak. There were some clouds obscuring it, but we did get to see the eclipse for a while and then later the full moon itself. Whenever we meet other telemark skiers around Albuquerque, they always tell us that all the telemarkers hike up Sandia Peak and ski down under the full moon each month. February's full moon happened to be the eclipse as well, so we finally went out there and enjoyed a late Wednesday evening ski... alone. Where were all those people that do this every month?

As a side note, I would have loved to post a picture of our evening skiing, but our camera batteries always die in the cold. Are there batteries that don't die in the cold?


  1. I bet that was beautiful! You can keep your batteries in an inside pocket in your coat or something, so they;'re warm until you need them.

  2. You should put them in your arm pits. That's what I do when my hands get cold.
