Crow’s Nest: Come on out, the weather’s fine!

Finally, a week after the big snow, I’ve gotten some time to get out just to enjoy it. It has thawed slightly and refrozen a number of times, packed down a bit, so it’s 8 – 12″ of nice powder. While we had plenty of kids out for Nature Clubs this week there has been a dearth of casual visitors to the preserve. The only cross-country ski and snowshoe tracks out there belong to staff who were inspecting trails, which by the way are fine—if you have a way of staying on top of the snow.

I’m sure there are plenty of people with cabin fever. The days are pretty mild and now is the time to get out to enjoy the snow while it is here!
