I didn't go cross-country skiing this week.
We had a lot of snow that had to be shoveled. (Shoveling snow is a different type of exercise that I generally don't mind, in moderation.) And on Friday mornings we ski at the hill, so no cross-country that afternoon.
I thought the wind-whipped snow would be to hard to ski on but when the kids and I went for a walk mid-week I discovered sections I wished I had skis for. But for the most part we could easily follow the snowmobile track without sinking through.

One of the best parts of winter walks in the woods is all the evidence of animal life, tracks only visible in the snow.
And like animals, or as animals, we leave our own evidence, marks that we have been here.
