I panicked a bit when I heard the forecast is due to change to where the temperature will spiral upwards and will last for some days. That is not good for our snow on the x-c ski trails. I am not ready to move my X-C Skis to the basement yet. I still have many miles of gliding left in me this season. The new fallen snow and the still cold enough temperature pair perfectly to create supreme trail conditions so I planned to knock off some of those miles that are still within me. My intentions were to get out the door early so I could be at Barrier Lake area to watch the sun rise. I sauntered somewhat which delayed my getting out the door and the sun rose on me while I exited the city. I drove straight to the Ribbon Creek Parking Lot to begin my X-C Ski trip.

I am not ready to move all my winter toys to the basement.
I still have many miles in me to knock off but they may now have to be with snowshoes on.
