Best of winter

Just in from XC skiing at about 1400' in the hills above East Corinth. With the afternoon sun hitting a south slope I watched a group of 5 buzzards (may have been crows or ravens....I couldn't be sure) core a thermal and climb until they were specs in the sky.
Best skiing in years and a reminder of what spring will bring. Life is good!

Has it been only 104 years?

Today is the anniversary of the day the Wright brothers spoiled their best glider by putting an engine on it.

Only 120 days till our season starts.
