On skis

The first five winters I spent were pretty cold and icy, so it figures that as soon as my wife and I take an interest in cross-country skiing we’d have two mild winters in a row. We had only our second snowfall on Wednesday and there was enough of it on the ground still that we went skiing on the university’s course today.

When I say we went cross-country skiing, I mean we walked around with skis on our feet. We stopped to watch this guy pass because he actually knew how to ski.
Clouds over a snowy field make a fish-scale pattern.
I don’t normally take pictures of clouds— I like how they are ephemeral— but these struck me while I was taking a break looking up at the ridge.
