Today was the annual ski and chili outing for our trail club at the Big M ski area. It was a perfect morning with a "salty" snow falling on the trees as I drove Campbell Road to Big M.
All together, 10 people showed up. Before lunch Ed (also went on the big hike this past spring) and I snowshoed the Corkpine Trail (about 1.2 miles). Most everyone else skied first, but a couple of people came just to enjoy the company. The wood stove warmed the building nicely after a really chilly start. Club VP Loren (of Four Dogs and a Friend) brought chili, crackers, brownies and hot chocolate! After eating and some chatting time, I took off on the Lumberjack Trail (1.6 miles) on skis. It was a great day! I didn't pull that muscle again at all; it was just a little tired, that's all.
Here we all are- We look like a bunch of old fogies. We would be happy to welcome younger participants, but it's interesting that the winter activities seem to be owned by the oldsters.
