Ski Adventure

Although I have head-lamped ski many times at night, I've never done so in the morning before sunrise, at least until today. Friends, Andy and Craig, asked me to tag along -- which is what I did. They had wider, back country skies; I did not. I made it all the way to the Lake Superior shoreline, through the school forest, but after 3 falls in the deep snow, I decided to ski the road back. It was beautiful, though, and a good way to start the day. Now, back to work on the book.

  1. School Forest is a magical place, although I've never visited it in January. One of my favorite memories is a picnic of horseradish cheddar cheese and roast beef on sun-dried tomato bagels (believe it or not, all that purchased at the grocery store in Grand Marais) with fresh-picked blueberries for dessert. Thank you for showing me the forest in winter's deep snows. I look forward to the new book.
