Time to hit the slope (yes, singular)

It's time to strap on the sticks and hit the slopes – well, only one slope. PCMR still has only one run open. The snow accumulation is about 4 inches (he'd rather it be 4 FEET!) But fresh, nature made snow is WAY better than man made stuff. Annette decides to kick back and read, watch movies. At the end of the day, we do hit the fitness center for a quick turn on the treadmill and a mad dash for the hot tub. You can hardly see them for the steam hovering around them.

The evening's plans are for another movie and late dinner. We thoroughly enjoy The Gangster with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.

Another recommended movie – see it the theater if you can – it's big and bold and suited to the big screen.

Since it's late, we mosey across the street to the Red Rock Junction and hope they are still serving. Our waitress, Pam, tells us about the recent awards won by the brewery: 2007 Great American Beer Festival Large Brewpub and Large Brewpub Brewer of the Year!

Of course, we have to try some of their offerings: Paul orders an Oatmeal Stout and Annette decides on a Honey Wheat beer. For eats, we start with the soup of the day, veggies, sausage and pasta. For entrees, we decide to have a salad and an entree:

Warm shrimp salad: Wattercress, baby spinach, roasted sweet potatoes, grapefruit, pistachios, gorgonzola with creamy lemon pepper dressing.

Salmon (special of the day) with a BBQ sauce and onion strings and their signature horseradish mashed potatoes.

The food is pretty interesting, but not nearly as interesting as Pam, who's confirming comment is “Let's get it goin'” We like her.
