Comments
Comments: Got to the trail head at 6:30 a.m. and it was only 7 degrees and it was not moving up. Met Bruce there who is a great cross country skier. We were freezing for the first mile or so. We did two loops which with some detours came out to about 7 miles. Beautiful day once the sun came out and shined on the Pond. Truly Beautiful. It snowed on us a lot from the wind blowing the snow off of the trees. Really Beautiful. Great Time Today. There is only a couple inches of snow on the ground there. It was only 17 degrees when we finished.
