Willard Brook NW. I could have sworn that I had more than one pair of XC skis, but maybe when we had the dumpster to clean out Mom's house, I tossed the others because I decided they were junk. Well, the pair I have left are junk, too. Maybe the skis are barely okay, but the boots and bindings are definitely junk. (The poles, however, are quite good.) So this barely qualified as skiing, but since there was snow out there, and not enough to justify snowshoes in my opinion, it seemed like the thing to do.

The snow was crusty in the open but softer in the woods, and the first trail I was on had a lot of running water. The bigger trails had had a snowmobile or two go through, but it wasn't packed down enough to skate. On the way back I decided to take a small trail that I remembered, in hope of bypassing a bit of climb and some of the wet sections, but I forgot that it was going to dump me out in the back yard of one of the houses on Vinton Pond, so it ended up doing neither, and I went through a bunch of woods.

Nice to be outside, though.
