"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old" Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Austrian-Chech writer. These words really resonate with me as I find it's a basic need for me to get out and see beauty in nature every day if I can. I don't have to travel far from home as Red Wing has many beautiful places to go to. I skied the golf course track today. This is a nice intermediate route that takes you half ways up the bluffs. Not as gnar as the otherside of the road but still it has it's attractions. This week there's no wind forcasted...booo....I only have the mornings off so no climbing or downhill skiing....so I'll be on my XC skis on the local trails near home. Now I may know where there is an ice flow...maybe...I'll be checking this week to see if it's there.
