It certainly warmed up this week in the northland. Yesterday we went out with no jackets. The snow is dwindling
but still no sign of grass, just muddy roads. Take advantage of this blog special I call the Muddy Road Special.
If you drive a truck and book a room in April 2013 the price on either of my theme rooms is $89.00 but you have to mention

here in that dirty truck!

Skiing and Eagles
I just can't express the awe I feel when I'm out on my ski trails and get to see such amazing things. Normally
when an eagle sees you it flies away and keeps on going. The past couple days I notice the eagles would circle back
and kept landing in the tree with the nest. My husband said he thought it was way too early for nesting but I was sure
he was wrong. I have been staying off the eagles nest trail as I don't want to scare them off. That trail
goes right under the nest. Yesterday I went out to Sams trail, there is a good view of the nest from about 200 yards
and its canopied with young red and white pines. I got positioned with my camera and started photographing with my zoom
lens. It's not easy zooming in on a flying eagle but I managed to get some amazing photos. So check out my
skiing page to see them. Oh and yes the eagles are nesting!
The Never Ending Winter
Why is everyone so grumbly about the snow that just keeps on falling and falling and falling?! I think it's great,
we had a slow start to winter 2 years in a row, it's catch up time. This is the best time of year to ski anyway.
Most days it is warm and fairly sunny so why not take advantage of what the good Lord gave us and get out there and have some
fun! Mention this blog and get your room for $10. off, that's $94. for the Wilderness room mid week.
Skiing as the sun goes down
Last night after dinner the blue sky and orange sunset moved us out to the ski trails for an early evening ski. It was
a little brisk out but the trails were great and the woods were gorgeous. We did a 2 mile trek around the Loon trail
onto Sams trail and down the Middle Pigeon trail to the Avenue of Pines, then back down the Lower Pigeon trail to the Ole
Inn trail & back home at dark.
AHHH Spring Skiing
This is that time of year that can make or break ski trails. Well so far so good. The warm weather came for a while
and we brought the groomer back home then more snow and more snow. Grooming has been a ton of back breaking work this
year and I can't say how many times I was stuck and digging out there by myself. It's all worth it though when
you strap on your skis and get out there. Now the trails are the best they have ever been. Most of the trails
have a 15 inch base and are groomed as perfectly as ever. It's heaven on earth! So true since the Lord walks &
ski with me!
1st snow then warmth & sun
Our ski trails had about a 12 inch base 2 weeks ago but the sun and the warm weather has beat them down to about an 8 inch
base. That still proves for great spring skiing! We re groomed the trails and skiing in this warm weather is awesome!
