Cross-country skiing

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, that’s what I always say.  In spite of earlier setbacks, I decided to give cross-country skiing another chance.  A downhill skier at heart, cross-country strikes me as challenging because the boot is only attached at the toe, giving one much less capacity to turn.  But it is a good alternative to hiking when you’ve had, oh, 33 cm (13 in) of snow.  Join me!
