Winter, wonderful Winter
Ok, it is true, these farmers really love winter. Between great outdoor fun in the snow and a break from many aspects of farm work, it is a great combination. Today we ventured out on our cross-country skis on a cold, but brilliantly sunny morning. The snow is wonderful and there was a few inches on the trails. The brooks have peaked out from under their snow and ice cover in a few places and it is a treat to stop by the edge and listen to it babble before pushing on. Due to some trail work with our neighbor Kati, we can now do a great loop up near the Boaz waterfall and cruise down the Red Zinger trail. Skiing out the door, can't be beat.
