It is less than a month till spring officially starts according to the calendar. Looking outside here, things will need to change quite a bit if our outdoor experience is to line up with the calendar.
The past several weeks have been very good for winter outdoor activities, well, at least until it rained and that made things crusty for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.
Here are a few pictures of some lovely sights while out getting some fresh air and exercise. My experience for a number of the days is summed up here:
Today I spent some time outdoors with my friend
With devices strapped on our feet we headed over hill and round bend
It was apparent quite soon, compared to her, I’m not nearly as fit
My friend easily floated ahead and then patiently waited a bit
The only time I could really keep up was with the beer at the end
