There’s nothing quite like trail skating in Colorado in the winter. This is life inside a Hallmark card. Join me…
The snow lies in cool, pillowy blankets to either side of the trail. White, clean & neat. There’s hardly a soul out here; we own this trail. 48 degrees, sunny and no wind. A gourmet recipe for outdoor winter skating.
The mallards gathered in a hole in the ice, their bright green heads made more luminous in the reflection off the water and snowy backdrop. Christmas is next week, and this feels like an early present.
Whew…I needed that.
I love skating.
