All recordings are from 1959-60, and most are approximately half an hour long.
Went skiing over the weekend at Lake Tahoe, as a rank novice. Fell over a number of times (which was fun) but also managed clean runs and very gentle parallels on the easy slopes (which was better). Nice drives out and back, with some hairily skiddy stretches on thin snow (esp. at night when the dividers on the road were well-nigh invisible). Carson Pass was high, cold and snowy. Our cabin porch was overhung with a row of long icicles and everything pretty much everywhere for miles around was buried in billowing piles of snow.
