I have been cross country skiing a fair amount lately. It always seems that there is not enough snow to ski, but I have been lucky every time.

Mendon Ponds Park is my regular place to go. The Quaker Pond loop is great! It is a safe loop to try when in doubt. Somehow there is always enough snow there. If you are looking for a more challenging loop, the East Esker loop is the “it” trail. It has lots of twisty and not so twisty ups and downs. A few weekends ago, Joel and I skied that loop with Kristin and Anton. It was their first time on that loop. We had lots of fun!

This past week, Joel and I went to Mendon Ponds again. This time it was in the evening and it was snowing pretty steadily. It was one of my favorite ski outings! Even though the snow was prickling my face and I could not see where I was going because the snow kept caking up on my glasses, I loved it! We were the only ones there and the snow was fresh, which was a first. Surprisingly, the snow was pretty fast, even though it was powdery. Next time we have a snowstorm, I’ll be out skiing for sure! :)

Last weekend we met up with a few friends in Harriet Hollister.

Craig, Joel, Tracy, the doggies, and I getting ready to ski.

This is a great location for cross country skiing! It was my first time there. I have been there a couple of times in the summer, but never in the winter. The trails are awesome! You truly are in the woods and there are a few twisty and not so twisty ups and downs.

Taking a break.

Also, there is this incredible view of Honeoye Lake!!

I will have to go there more often. Another thing to look forward to when going to Harriet Hollister is this great cafe called Mill Creek Cafe located on the main street in Honeoye. They have some very tasty sandwiches and home made chips. I was thinking about eating there the entire time we were skiing. Unfortunately, they are not open on Sundays during the winter. :( I guess I will just have to go there on a Saturday instead.
