Enjoying Winter

Yesterday was a day to enjoy winter. Concord, NH received record amounts of snow in December, more than all of last winter. We took advantage of a sunny and mild (32) day and headed to the Audubon Society and enjoyed the snow instead of complaining about it.
The skis didn't make it out of the garage last winter, but I didn't feel all that rusty. We kept an easy pace, we had to portage over just one stream. It was fun to break a trail across a field. I would have expected it to be well tramped, but apprently most skiiers headed from the groomed trails. We encountered several snowshoeing couples. I've not tried snowshoeing; there is no prospect for gaining speed on the hills.
The sun was low in the sky. I'm glad I'd grabbed my camera. Without pictures, I tend to forget about events. At year's end, it's nice to reflect back on the pictures and remember the good times.
If you're in the snow belt, I hope you find a way to enjoy the snow!

Hi Gail,
Found your blog thru "Keep the Rubber Side Down." Great reading here. As I'm typing it's snowing outside here in Colorado. I'm a 40something motorcyclist myself and thoroughly enjoying myself. I get out on my own, with my husband or with groups. Each has their unique qualities.

Wishing you a Happy New Year of New Adventures,
Biker Betty :)
