Lake Gertrude Ski

Yesterday afternoon we went to Lake Gertrude for more cross country skiing with the kids. We shared the lake with a father-son couple who was ice fishing.  There have been several people out ice fishing each day and from the sounds of it, people have been catching edible fish!

 There was no wind to speak of  yesterday and between the late afternoon light, a burst of sunshine and some snow, the scenics were gorgeous. 

Nora suggested we have a family ski race, which she won! We each had our handicaps; Stuey fell right off the bat, Patrick was only allowed to use 1 pole (on skate skis) and I had no poles (on classic skis).  It was fun to see Nora charge ahead and win the race.
