Waking up this morning it was still drizzling a bit.
Soon the sunrise made all the snow pink.
Off i went on my 'pelicans' again. I don't know if these peltonens are the best choice for a ski today, but i kind of like them now. You might think me rich, having all those skis. But those are actually bought some 30 years ago, probably 3th hand, the original owner of boots and skis, the Don Sumanik.
The sky is incredible again today. The skiing excellent. The snow different again. Another confession; i never use wax (there might be some 20 year old clister on my skis). Skiing up hill and downhill with ease. The lake a little tricky as i sink in too deep and sometimes the whole snowbed drops down. Walking in the snow is easier again too, besides that it has shrunk it is now so soft, that it melts while you step in it.
I am of to the water again, and get rewarded handsomely. The pools, which i also posted in the 'dancing' post, are clear with water. There are a few more pools now, one that my ski trail goes through. There's ice underneath, i speed through it and don't get wet feet.
The birds are active now it's warm. Ravens fly over and I scare some grey jays in the trees along the lake. Chickadees in the forest.
On my way back, on a South slope my ski trail shines as silver in the sun.
