Shrine Mountain Inn, Colorado – 1990


David Hiser, Barbara Bussell (both from Aspen), my wife Kathy and myself, and Kathy’s son, Brahm Reynolds, skied in to the Shrine Mountain Inn in the winter of 1990. David was on a photo assignment, and Barbara was his friend and ski model. David got his shots, and we all had a great time.
