  • COLUMN: Feeling old, looking forward

    A few weeks ago, I was standing knee-deep in snow on the edge of a bluff, hanging onto a skinny tree branch and trying to take photos of a car that had landed in a creek below.
    The snow had edged over the top of my Fat Babies (boots, people, boots) and I was losing traction fast. I got a few photos and prayed that I wouldn’t end up at the bottom of the hill (or on YouTube) – looking like a giant snow burrito – before I finished.
