cross country skiing
2 months ago

The cross country ski trails were not really groomed this weekend, lots of footsteps. We took the main cross country ski trail all the way out to Eagle's Hut and then turned around and came back the exact same way ~11 miles roundtrip in ~4 hours. The last mile to the hut was rough--trail is thin, ruined with footsteps and quick sharp dips/hills that risk breaking your skis. The view, or lack thereof at the top/hut, was not really worth the effort to get there. Nonetheless I appreciate the opportunity to ski through a mountain pass and get outdoors in the middle of winter! Lots of moose tracks, but didn't see any wildlife.
