Jay T's Adirondack Vacation

Kathleen and I made our annual Christmas trip to Upstate New York where she grew up. The Glens Falls area to be precise but we stayed with her sister twenty minutes south in Saratoga. Anyway, they had 2 feet of snow when we got there... Rain followed by temps in the 30s, 40s and 50s for several days wrecked the ski trails. After the rain, the trails froze like a solid sheet of ice. I got out one day on the cross country skis. The temp warmed the trail up a little but it was still tough skiing. I skied for a little over an hour Crandall Park in Glens Falls after first trying the Queensbury Trails. Queensbury was a complete sheet of ice. Crandall Park had some high scholl kids there and they busted it up a little bit. There were tons of pine needles in the trail though. The other big workout was 30 minutes of snowshoeing with Kathleen, my sister-in-law and niece. Check out the picture of the Queensbury Trails. They don't appear to be icey in the pic but they were...
