Saturday Skate Instead

I had all intentions of another Solo Saturday hiking up Prairie Mountain but when I woke to frosty, foggy conditions I changed my mind.  I hiked Prairie Mountain on November 11th in a blizzard and would like to do it again when there is a view.  My instead was still a solo!  A solo skate bright and early this morning at the Bowness Lagoon.   This was my view as I started out! I had the place to myself!  What a canvass!  
The conditions were perfect, both ice and weather.  Lady GaGa, Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry,  Coldplay and The Weather Girls showed up and kept me company the whole time.
The sky was quite grey which made the trees stand out even more.  As I was finishing up my 14km, the sun was trying to burn through.  I was amazed at how this photo turned out!  I am loving my 9000 even more.
My legs felt heavy and tired near the end which I am sure I can contribute to yesterday.  Just over 14km on my blades in 1:15 was a great cross trainer and proof that I did it is right here.

  1. wow, I am just catching up on all your gorgeous pictures and amazing outdoors - great idea to hold your own Olympic games! My oldest son loves to follow the events, but it must be much more exciting when you have it in your own backyard!
