Mud up! Looking back Looking forward

Since winter is hanging on and most of the training is inside (just say ice and snow) might as well watch some action from last December. Schedule is up for next year!!


Frostbite and Whiteouts

What a great weekend of XC skiing. Though Sunday might be the coldest I've been out in. Was -4 degrees (F) when we left the trail head. Winds were steady at 20 mph with gusts. The trail we were on is mostly sheltered so the wind was only a nasty factor for short periods of time. Though windchill of -25 or so doesn't take long for it to be a factor. Even managed to overdress by a layer.

Fresh coyote tracks, a ruffled grouse taking off, opening up the drifted ski tracks. A fun time out there.

The drive was something else with the fresh snow in the wind creating near total whiteouts at times.

Ready to go again!


50 v.2 Making any sense?

For those of you following along at home....

Fifty Years of Birthdays

Pretty cool...

Winter or not?

The climate is made up of “weather”; whether it is nice out depends on whether it is raining or not. Well, it's raining. Seems the snow we had that was great for XC skiing is now being rained on.
