Saturday in the Spotlight
Here's how Saturday began at 4:15 am. Yes, that's me, the hooded spectre on the left. Usually, Om can get out to do the paper route, and then I clear the driveway before he gets home, if it needs it. However, we had about 12 inches of snow fall overnight. You think I'm kidding? Look at the depth of the first snowblower pass. The light is me coming back up the drive on pass number two.
It was hard to choose just a few pics for today... each event had many choices, but the total effect was bigger than any one piece. Anyway, I couldn't get back to sleep after the early wakeup. The sun finally got up, too, and spread lovely pink light over all the white snow.
At 10 am, the trail club met at Crystal Valley for a ski outing. There were five of us. The groomer hadn't been there yet, so we had to make our own tracks!
By the time I got home from that adventure, I was thinking it was nap time, but I just had time to eat and leave for a trail club meeting. I know this isn't an outdoor adventure, such as I usually focus on, but this is the key group of people who work hard to make our 80 miles of the North Country wonderful for everyone to hike. It was an important part of my day, so there you have it.
And that's how I spent Saturday!
P.S. I'm doing the paper route in the morning, so I'll be grumpy tomorrow. I'll try to be over it before I chat with you!
