x-country skiing today

Postby oldranger » Tue Feb 22, 2011 4:42 pm

Went skiing near Santiam Pass today with a couple of other retired old farts. The prediction was for snow! There were about 4 inches of new over night when we started and another 2 or 3 inches fell during the two and a half hour ski. Wind probably averaged 20 mph with gusts double that. None of us could figure out who's idea it was to go out on such a nasty day. Sometimes the visibility was zero.

Where did everybody go?
Once in a while you could even see ahead.

Oh darn It's my turn to break trail but they are too far ahead!


I think we all agreed that the highlight of the day was lunch and brew at Three Creeks Brewing Company in Sisters.

I did learn something on this trip: The more pics you take the less you have to break trail! :D
