Cross country skiing

Winter fun in New Hampshire. Photos taken Jan. 14, 2011 in Auburn, NH. Trail was quiet on Friday afternoon, only had one snowmobile pass us. This is usually a very busy trail on weekends. The sign on the tree says "CAUTION, WATCH FOR SLED DOGS ON TRAIL".

The protocol is to let everyone else go by so we step to the side when we hear motors or dogs. It felt wonderful to be out in the crisp, cold air, moving these old bones. Joe is 69 and I will be 65 in the spring, but we are still moving! Very happy about that.

We had about 18" (47 cm?) of snow this week. Loved it. Of course, I don't have to drive in it so that makes my life easier. It was in the 20's yesterday, not too cold, but comfortable for this kind of skiing (that's below zero centigrade, but I don't remember the conversion tables any more.) I added that since I notice that some of my followers are not used to the silly American system of measuring. I wish we would go along with the rest of the world and go metric, but that is unlikely to happen in my lifetime.
