Another January Day

 Here are a few pictures that showed up on the camera. Every week we get more snow, and the base just keeps getting better and better. 

 This is the beginning of the ski trail as it heads west. It is the beginning of what has become a 90 minute daily ski in the woods. Very refreshing, and good for the soul.
The ski tracks have been holding together really well. The temp has been from 20F-10F. which is ideal to keep the snow firm.

I love looking at your snow but I think you would have to box me up if I have to live it.

Better form snow if you have to walk on it, don't like that sinking feeling. Ha.

The key is glide over the snow. I always thought that it would be so cool to be a bird and fly here and there. Skiing is probably as close as I'll get.

We lived in Northern New Mexico for a few years and learned to XC ski there. Great, great snow up in the Sangre de Cristos and the San Juans of Southern Colorado. Very few mountains here on Cape Cod, so the skis more or less live in the basement. I envy you that daily pleasure.

Hollis: It is 1F here with a windchill on -22F I wonder if it will be a daily pleasure today! Northern New Mexico sounds like a great place to live.

While I don't miss having to shovel snow, I sure do miss skiing and snow shoeing. Not much point to winter if you don't take advantage of it.
