DH and I went out skiing again after my massage today, remembered the camera this time.
Mary, don't be impressed. We took up cross country skiing late in life, maybe 15 years ago. I read somewhere that cross country skiing can be enjoyed late in life, it's easy and doesn't take any athletic skills. We rented some ski's at our local national park the first time and loved it. We purchased some inexpensive skis' the first time, used those for about 5 years, then splurged on some really expensive ones. People ski into their 80's, that's how easy it is. It's not hard on my feet either because my heel isn't pounding the pavement like it does in walking. Everyone of you Golden Girls should go rent some in a park and try it, this is coming from a person who hates to exercise.
Bobbi your skiing impresses me!

That's our house in the background, we're just coming home. Yesterday we took 'Charlie' with us, today we went down into a marshy area to see how many fox/coyote tracks we could find and left him home. He cried when we put our ski clothes on, he wanted to go again.
