A personal highlight of the trip was my fist experience on skis. On our first day, Bob and I got a quick cross-country ski lesson from Marty at the Queechy Inn (he is one of the kindest and knoweldgeable outdoor enthusiasts I have ever met). Then it was on to Suicide Six in Woodstock to pursue downhill - much to everyone's surprise I quickly graduated from the "J-bar" to the "easy mile".
Also in Woodstock we visited some art galleries. I particularly liked the Woodstock Folk Art Prints & Antiques gallery located on Elm Street. I fell in love with the work of Tanya Zaryski.
