Sorry I haven’t posted a blog in a while. I’ve been really busy, I just started College in Utah, so I’m trying to get back into the school routine. I got back from New Zealand two weeks ago. New Zealand was a blast, I was down there with the US Team. In my house we had a fantastic group of girls, Kelly Clark, Gretchen Bleiler, Elena Hight, myself, and our two coaches. All of us were down there for different reasons, but the focus while I was there was getting my legs back under me and getting some good riding in. I competed in the Burton NZ Open, and unfortunately didn’t do as well as I had hoped, but I had a great time competing in Slope, and Pipe. It’s fun to ride with the slope girls and mix it up a bit! At the end of the trip, my flight got canceled and my coaches and I were caught in New Zealand’s “Storm of the decade!” It was crazy, it never snows in Queenstown, and it snowed a bunch there. Cars couldn’t drive around, and we had to take a water taxi into town to get some food. All the ATMs were out of money. Needless to say it was a great adventure. It’s kind of fun being holed up somewhere because of weather, and we had absolutely no control over flying out or not. We ended up getting on the first flight out of NZ (after two days), and I made it back home. It was really fun trip, I can’t believe I’ve been to NZ seven times. Holy cow! Now I’m back in Salt Lake, I just started school, so I’ve been swamped with work, training, and my new kitty. Check out my new cat. His name is Dennis Hollingsworth the first!
