Karl had suggested to meet me at Timberland Hills during my drive back to the Cities. We met at 1:00 PM at the warming house and skied the outside loop. Great conditions, a few spots where the dirt came through but easily avoidable. First time here for me, I can say that Timberland Hills deserves its name, it's a constant up and down. For many of the hills, the momentum form the previous downhill helps a lot, but there are a couple decent climbs. Good to catch up with Karl, too! We came by a befuddled looking muskrat hobbling along the trail, she was probably looking for a lake. I thought to myself "Lucky I don't have Roux with me, that would have been a bloodbath ..."

Only a very short walk but a lot of ambling about, from hole to hole.

Fun ski with Roux, we passed all of our friends and many more. Busy trails with people and a few dogs, but Jolly Long trail did not see much action. Soft, fresh snow and mild temps made for slow going but Roux was a trooper!
