Foltz states that one can have an aesthetic experience without necessarily having to know the scientific background of what is being observed. This is definitely the case whenever I go on my various ski trips. Whenever I'm shredding a new mountain or hill, I am not thinking of the science behind such locations. Quite honestly, I am just taking in the scenery as a whole and am appreciating it for its natural beauty. The beautiful white powder, the green pines, and often sunny skies all make up a breathtaking snow experience for me. It is so easy to become engulfed in the majesty of such a site, and I am looking forward to the countless more aesthetic experiences that are to come in my next endeavors.
