Cross-country Skiing/ My World

Cross-country Skiing in York Regional Forest


We do have snow, but it's not so cold that we stay indoors!

Last week a cross-country skier passed us while we were walking in the forest. He had that YES! look on his face as if he was looking forward to a few minutes with nature.

Yay! No snow here yet, just a half hour south (that "big storm" last night was nothing but rain). So I can't take my skis out on the golf course yet. But I could throw them in the car and drive up your way!

I don't think I could ever do that - I'm not tough enough!!! Nice shots though - they were calling for snow here yesterday & today, but we've only seen a few flurries!

Susan said...

We so rarely get snow, that it's a joy to see it. I love the tangle of branches with their snow in your photos!

Enjoy your beautiful winter-- thank you for sharing some of its beauty.

Cross country's waaaay too much like work for me. But I wouldn't mind having that snow on a mountain for downhill purposes.

Funny you should mention it, bu tin your comment you said you didn't realize Raleigh was as big as it is. So out of curiosity I checked, and it's even bigger that I knew. I had estimated our population at about 300,000. Turns out it's over 380,000, and recently passed Minneapolis, Tampa, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

I had no idea.

That looks like fun although I'm not much of a skier. Beautiful shots.

What a wonderful winter wonderland you live in. I am sooo envious!!!
I love snow on the trees coming down on you in an avalanche as you pass below, deer hiding in thickets and the gleaming whiteness of it all when the sun comes out.

It looks like a magical place. I sure would love walk in all that snow just to commune with nature.

Looks so pretty.

I'm cold just looking at the photos, but it is an interesting aspect of your world. I have friends who cross-country ski, and it always sounds like great fun.

I miss cross-country skiing. This looks glorious. I can feel the swish swish of the skis.

A great winter activity. Lovely snowy pictures!

Lilli & Nevada said...

No snow for us yet but should be, the temp is around 68 degrees, not enough snow on the ski lodge to open, they are not happy.
Your view of the snow and the skier is very pretty.
Thanks for sharing your world

Nice shots. I'm longing to take my skis and go to La Plagne for Xmas !

Nice post. I always wonder if it's harder to ski like this than just walk. :-)

Marites said...

Powell River Books said...

We have only had snow in the high country so far. It has been a fairly mild fall. I haven't done any cross country skiing in many years, but we like to snowshoe whenever we can. To get to the snow we often load our snowshoes on our quad and ride to the trails. We can get farther on the quads than in our truck. I invite you to come see the Hulks, a unique aspect of my town, Powell River, BC. - Margy

EG: What a neat look at your country with the snow and nature.

That was a cute comment, I got it.

I've always wanted to do this but have never really lived where there was THAT much snow.

Loved your Ruby Tuesday post, too!

gnometree said...

Snow..... never seen it. It looks beautiful. One day, :sigh:...
A friend who lives in Nain (Labrador) says he is sick of snow. Guess it's like me being sick of the sun.
Great pictures, thanks for sharing
