Today we went cross country skiing on the groomed trails at Old School, a Lake County Forest Preserve.
It was a grey day with some patches of blue and the last mild weather day before another cold front moves in. I haven’t been skiing for probably 15 years so I was moving like a born-again newbie. I fell twice, both times when I was standing still.
Arthur had skied once before, also many years ago. We were not smooth but we had a great time and a great workout, too.
We didn’t see any wildlife besides one deer we spooked when driving through the parking lot, but we saw lots of animal tracks. Here’s a well-used deer route.
This one’s got me puzzled. It looks too small for squirrel but it ends at the base of the tree. What could it be?
