It’s been quite cold awhile now – minus 13 centigrade today. Not very good for carpentry or much of anything else outside, but it is perfect weather for skiing.

I put on my cross country skis and took off to the neighboring farm. To the hills and fields where the deer and the elk play. Where seldom is heard a disparaging word and the skies are not cloudy all day.

I didn’t see a single person, but two deer leaping and bounding across the fields and over the barbwire fences, and also an eagle gliding and swooping above looking for smaller animals.

This morning the air was humid with no wind, resulting in a thick coating of rimfrost on everything.
