I work
at a “quirky” ski area
small and out-of-the-way
where the founder
decades dead
is our avatar

A German Jew, better yet,
smart enough to have left
in other than a cattle car
and start a ski area here

While not necessarily intended as a haven
for Jewish-American ski instructors
I, an aged Aspen alumnus, find this
my last resort

Do I look like an avatar?

I am a photographer and have published a book of photography and accompanying text on running the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. The first (print) edition is out of print, but a second edition is available as an iBook (eBook) through the iTunes bookstore. All Grand Canyon, river and nature lovers will enjoy my book: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-grand/id672492447?ls=1
