brrrr but a great day outside

DBF and I went cross-country skiing today. This is at Shelburne Farms, looking towards Lake Champlain and then a bit further, across the lake, the mountains you see are the Adirondacks in New York. Shelburne Farms was Lila Vanderbilt Webb's agricultural estate. Nice nice piece of property, and now a National Historic Landmark. It's still a working farm, has an Inn open during summer, and the grounds are open during the winter so folks can ski/snowshoe for free.

Skied for a little over an hour before nature called and went in for a bio-break. At that point, we called it a day. I'll count that as the equivalent to 4-5 easy miles.
