Spring is in the air. The snow is still thick, but it surely won’t be long now before the white blanket covering our world starts melting away. I have been feeling a sense of urgency to get out on the tracks again while there is still time, so this afternoon Maria and I headed out for what may be one of the last cross country skiing trips of the season. Well, maybe not a trip but at least a circuit of the local skiing track. The snow will probably hang around for weeks yet, but life is so busy, and there is so little time for getting out… So a sunny Saturday afternoon with the temperature just on freezing was perfect for us!
