St Patrick's Day Ski

On St Patrick's Day Gregg, Lisa, Philip, Adelia and I cross country skiied up the American River. It was a gorgeous day and superb skiing conditions. And also at around 15 miles round trip a VERY long ski. But it was mostly flat along the dry river bed of the American River. Once we got a ways back in there were no more snowmachine tracks and the trees closed in on the river. We gradually climbed up to 450 feet elevation so the homeward bound portion with an already broken in trail was MUCH faster. I think my favorite part of the trip is the huge canyon at the head of the valley. As we were skiing home realized that I have not done this particular ski trip since the day after Gregg and Lisa's wedding 6 years ago! Patrick
