Tracks

x country skiingRecently we were invited by friends for a cross country ski outing.  It has been several years since we have used our cross country skis and we thought it would be prudent to take a trial run before embarrassing ourselves in front of our friends.  Our first attempt was to venture into our woods where we’ve cleared a path for sugaring.  It was virgin snow, and oh my, what a disaster!  The snow was so deep and we struggled a good bit.  I threw in the towel after 2 falls but knew how important it is to “get back on the horse” as it were.  So later that afternoon we agreed to meet our friends.

The trail they had in mind was flat and easy, which was good because we were so rusty.  This time turned out to be much more pleasant since the snow was packed down by snow mobiles and when we ventured off the trail, one of our friends led the way.

The woods were beautiful and along with people tracks, we saw evidence of wildlife as we made our way along.

I love how the snow reveals the presence of wildlife.
