Time to Put the Skis Away - What an Adventure!

Well, the days and nights of cross country skiing seem to be melting away.  Not that I'm complaining about the sunny, above 30 degree days that we've been experiencing all week.  It's just that I was hoping for a few more opportunities to strap the skis on.  We've seen some beautiful spots around Minnesota this winter.  We toured Forestville State Park near Preston, Nerstrand Big Woods State Park between Northfield, Kenyon and Faribault, Banning State Park near Sandstone, Owatonna's own Rice Lake State Park, and of course, Kaplan's Woods.  We skied at 5 below zero and when it was in the 30's in just long sleeved shirts (no mittens, jackets or hats).  We took advantage of many full moon evenings, which helped guide our way if the headlamps were running low.  In all, it was a wonderfully enjoyable winter - with great snow for skiing.  Next year I'm getting some snow shoes just in case the conditions for skiing aren't quite the same.  It's always a new adventure - something for everyone to enjoy with each season.

I know with the warmer weather when you live up North comes loosing the snow; I am happy to live in Florida and can't wait until the weather gets back to warmer Florida weather.

Caring expertise...knowledge for you!

You make it sound like fun.    I think I prefer the "wet coast", though...liquid snow!

Just when we thought it was safe to put the boots away, now they are predicting 10-13 inches of snow again.
