Excellent Winter Conditions

There is between three and four feet of snow in the woods, with more on the way today– we have a winter storm warning through Sunday.

Snowmobiling conditions are good–  nice base on the railroad ROW/powerline, although the trail has not been groomed since we received the last dump of snow.

The skiing on Whiteface has got to be spectacular– and they opened up the new trail over Lookout Mountain.

Not a lot of activity around the lake.  We only have around 25 year-round residents in the Loon Lake/Inman area.  Yesterday  the only vehicles  I saw were a garbage truck, school bus and propane truck.  I did hear one group of sleds on the trails, and saw some ice fishermen on Bass Lake.

Porter and I went grouse hunting yesterday.  He had to follow behind me, as I broke trail on my snowshoes.  We explored a new area (for me), and were rewarded with a flushing grouse blasting out from under the snow cover.

Paula and I are heading out on snowshoes this morning, and later we will make pizza.  We are expecting a young friend  to drop by after the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival parade.  We aren’t going in– I would rather spend some time deep in the woods.
