|But pray tell, what happen to the back of that poor girl's leg on the last photo page?
Ah, you went for the rest of the story...
We were coming down the mountain on the second day and I look up in time to see my girlfriend falling backwards downhill. She lands flat on her back with her legs straight up in the air and comes down with the skis straight out to the side. (I took almost the same fall last yer at Vail.) I get down to her real fast because I thought she might be hurt, she looked to have fallen pretty hard. I get there and she is dying laughing and hoping that I saw what happened. (Strangely, I also have the fit of laughter after most falls.) Something hit her knee pretty hard in the fall, she thinks it was a ski. It was badly enough bruised that she stopped skiing on it about 2:00 PM the last two days because it would begin to hurt. She also had a little neck soreness. On the other hand, she felt fine the rest of the day and didn't have any discomfort until that night and it didn't give any problem other than soreness late in the day. The bruise is on the inside of the left knee just above the joint on the bottom of that muscle that runs up the inside of the thigh and around to the back a little. The last night we both had a couple of frames left so she wanted a picture to show people her trophy. The bruise is just about gone now and she is getting around fine. Which is good because I had this fear that it might be more serious when I saw the bruise.
