There is snow on the ground somewhere in Minnesota

Sunday and Monday were spent up in Lutson, MN.  It was the first time I had ever been skiing, and despite my previous opinion of it, I think I like it.  After speeding down the kiddie practice hill on my rear for about two hours, I decided I was ready to try the bunny hill.  Taking the lift to the top was peaceful, so quiet on a mountain.  Against my instinct that slipping down a hill on a couple of shiny sticks is a bad idea, after a while it was wonderful.  We took a trail that sloped and curved with a view of Lake Superior that rose so high into the horizon, you would think it would spill up the mountain side.  The pool and facility was also quite pleasant.
