First day of spring

We went x-c skiing today on the first day of spring. Two springs ago we were riding bikes by now and the temperature was 78F on March 18. Last spring, my first ride was on March 27. The past two days brought a storm that dropped 8-9" of new snow. The trail we skied on wasn't groomed but we could see just a faint indication of where the previous tracks had been set. The way back was a little easier, retracing the trail we had already broken.


  1. Hayward has sooo many outdoor choices. I was trying to recognize where you were skiing...Hospital trails?? No clue really. I have a feeling that come next year your first ride will be much earlier than March 27th. Congratulations!!

  2. Yup, Hospital trails. Good guess. I hope you're right about next year's first ride being much earlier!
