|The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center has 90 km of groomed Nordic trails with warming huts serving hot cocoa and tea. |
The base lodge has homemade soups, oven roasted turkey on fresh baked bread and apple brownies.
Yep, skiing is all about the food.
|When we returned home, our driveway was hidden under a foot of fresh snow.|
|The trees were frosted white. I stood for a moment in awe of the familiar transformed.|
|Best of all, my husband had done all the shoveling and tidied the mudroom.|
|Bluebird sky returned as my kids headed reluctantly back to school.|
|Scout led the way into the woods, wagging her tail. |
I'm trying to train her to run outside the tracks.
|The early morning light was blue and the air was still.|
Snow showered down from the drooping pines randomly.
|I couldn't have dreamed of a moment this beautiful so close to home.|
|At the cove I paused to listen to the Canada geese. Then I followed my tracks back the way I'd come.|
More snow is falling this morning through Friday; hopefully it won't turn to rain. I love a real winter!
