I spent last week in Park City, Utah, with most of my colleagues. We (all 277 of us) usually work from home, spread across the globe, so this annual get-together was a chance to see everyone face-to-face. We met up at Canyons Resort — I was a bit skeptical about going to a ski resort in the off season, but it was beautiful.
Thanks to the miracle of flying west, I was an early riser all week. One morning I woke up around sunrise and met up with a coworker for a walk on Sunrise Trail:
A couple days later, a big group of us went up the gondola to check out the hiking trails higher up on the mountain. I was sad to find that one of the most-recommended trails to the top of the mountain was closed, but we found plenty of other places to hike:
The last morning of the meetup, the clouds had rolled in and I managed a quick solo hike before the rain started:
I’m now suffering from jetlag and the withdrawal you get when you’ve had a week full of intense conversation, challenging projects, and meeting friends. It’s that odd feeling, right after the introverted outburst of “Thank goodness I am home with quiet time to myself,” when I wish I could walk down the hall to chat with a coworker.
Thank goodness for WordPress. 🙂
