I was inspired/jelous of CS's workout of laying sod and thought I would share what it's like for the rest of us in the frozen north!<br><br>
It's been a couple years since I have XC skied. It was beautiful. Worried a lot about avalanches though and about 45 minutes into the trail, we had to crawl over one because it blocked the trail. Then after we turned around we heard a big boom in the sky. Both DH and I got freaked out at first but it turned out to be two fighter jets flying very low in the sky. Pretty cool looking! Two and half hours of skiing and I had to come home to take a nap!!!<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n312/kristineklo/P1000938.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

What fun! The BF and I each bought a pair of snowshoes this year, and have been having a blast playing in the snow!!

Yes, that is Lake Kachees that runs along I-90 over Snoqualmie. We can be on the trail and skiing 45 minutes from our house!

Wow. That is nice. The long distance fiend in me sees in that picture these two equidistant tracks disappearing into the distance and wants to slap a set of crosscountry skiis on for myself.

I just went out and cleared the driveway and it's that wet sticky cement stuff. It wouldn't be all that great for x-c skiing. I've also only been back inside for an hour and you wouldn't know I cleared the driveway.<br><br>
It looks so beautiful there. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll be in Seattle for biz.

Beautiful, looks perfect for x-country skiing. We were out on the golf course last week, but the snow was icy on top and we skided around, too many downhills for x-country skiing. Your trail looks wonderful!!

Kristine that looks beautiful! I'm hoping to get in some xc skiing this next week on vacation. It's such a peaceful experience...and hard work!

Oh, that's beautiful! X-country skiing is one of about 3 things I miss about living in a place with snow <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I don't see no sod? Wheres the mud, the dirt? All I see is a bunch of white stuff. And why on earth are you wearing all those clothes, it's like 90 outside? Ugh!<br><br>
That does look like a lot of fun. I'm not sure I could handle the cold though.<br><br>
