One of the best ways to beat winter is to get outside and do fun activities. Since we’ve already mastered sledding, this weekend we moved on to skiing. Saturday night we went to Governor Nelson State Park with friends and skied on torch-lit trails. After an easy 1.3 mile loop, we warmed up with hot cocoa and a fire. Sunday, we ventured out to the middle of Lake Monona for an uncommon view of Madison. The photos turned out awesome.
I am worn out. I can’t believe how much work cross country skiing is. But it was a fabulous weekend and I can’t imagine having taken advantage of our warm spell any other way. For getting over my fear that the lake really isn’t frozen enough to support my weight, I am grateful.
