As you can see, it was a gorgeous day. The temperature was 0* but there was no wind. There were burn barrels all fired up so you could warm up. But we didn't really need to take advantage of the fires. Once Doug and I got the hang of it, we got warmed up really fast. After about an hour and half we took a break and ate the lunch we had packed. Then we went a couple rounds before we thought we should call it a day (since we could both still walk and didn’t hurt anywhere). We thought it best to quit while we were ahead. But we intend to try the cross-country skiing again. Our instructor told us about some other trails in the area. I think he only mentioned the ones where he thought we couldn’t get into too much trouble!!
When we were finished and turned in our equipment, we had hot chocolate and hot cider (compliments of the bourough).
As we waited for the activities to begin, we noticed the frozen waterfalls on the sides of nearby mountains. In the summer, these are actually waterfalls tumbling down the hillsides. If you look closely, you can see the frozen waterfalls in this picture.
