 Eastside Trail, along the Pemi
Decided to sleep in this morning, then exercise my civil liberty and vote in the Presidential Primary and then exercise my body with a skiing test. Hadn't been out on the BC skis with a pack so headed north. Checked out the Eastside Trail along the Pemi. Figured there would be less traffic and better conditions than across the river. I was not wrong. Great outing. Learned a bit about balance with the pack, gotta layer differently than when hiking (still have not mastered the no-sweating thing), boot fit on the smaller foot, blah blah blah.

Enough about me, on to the pics

At the beginning

Dappled sunlight along the way

Not even the brooks are frozen over

Lots of healthy birches

Finally found some snow-cone trees

Not the best, but better than nuthin

A nice Tuesday off?? Lucky you! I had to work all day and then wait in line to exercise my liberty after that. I like your exercise better, and I like the Eastside Trail better than the otherside trail that shall not be named. Too bad there is no bridge at the end to cross anymore. :( Pine Island was nice in the fall too. No idea if it's even traveled in winter but it made a nice little loop using the two of them.

Yes. Lucky me. One of the few perks of working at a public high school in a district where they use the other schools as polling places.

Did not take the Pine Island loop. Checked it out but the snow cover was quite spotty and my skis are fairly new and I just couldn't handle the rocks and roots and branches all over the place. As it was I was skiing on about a quarter inch of snow over crusty ice, but it was enough for a nice glide and even some freestyle skating in sections.
