Today was the monthly outing for the Spirit of the Woods Chapter of the NCTA (just read trail club). For several Februaries now, we've had a ski day and chili feed at the Big M Ski Area. A couple more people showed up before the day was over, but it was a small turnout. Here we are, and yes, that's Om behind me. Every once in a while, I can get him into the woods.
And, indeed, he not only went for the chili, but went out with us on the Corkpine Trail.
After that, he'd had enough, but Loren and I also did the Lumberjack Trail, the other easy loop. My skill level isn't good enough for any other trails at Big M (I think). It's a tough set of loops, and I'm not very brave on skis.
This is just a pretty spot where the trail curves past some red pines. It was a fun day. The only downside is that Maggie doesn't get to go to places where the ski trails are groomed.
