Winter Sports


Only my second time on snow shoes.  Late afternoon. Very cold. Snow had a three inch crust on it but most of the time I didn't break through.

We were on an old private airstrip.

Snow tubing!

Not me.

Cross country skiing!
Also not me.

Granddaughters are masked while skiing with friends.

Sunday we accompanied them all while they skied on groomed trails and we snowshoed. My attempt at taking a picture of the trails didn't account for snow or fog on my lens.

Ice sculpture.
This owl was created near the girls school.

Sugar maple tapping. Maybe not quite a sport but its the first time these maples have been tapped that are on our property.

Son in law has built a fire pit in his yard to boil down the sap.
