Spring Skiing

Yesterday Zoya and I went cross country skiing on the riverbed up above Buskin Lake. Absolutely beautiful. No wind, temperature around 40, and plenty of corned up snow. We are at that moment that happens every year when winter hangs in the balance and the skiing is great. It's basically still winter down at sea level, but spring is in the air, and with one big rain storm all the sea level snow could get washed away and never return. Pretty soon we'll lose our night and it will stop freezing at night. Crocuses will bloom and stuff will start to grow. But for now at sea level the snow pack is at its max and the skiing is great.
