Another sign that autumn is really upon us ...
I came upon a cross-country ski team practicing on rollerskis this morning while I was riding to work on the bike trails. While I enjoy skiing once winter arrives, I'll keep the bike rolling until then. In fact, I'll keep the bike rolling after then, but I'll also jump on the skis a couple times a week too.
Also, it seems like everyone is looking at the mountains, waiting for the first termination dust to appear. It will be here before long, but we’ve still got quite a bit of autumn to get through before winter.
But I am busy working on stories for our annual Guide to Winter. It creates some mixed emotions: I really enjoy winter, but it’s tough to think about it while there are still summer and fall activities to enjoy.
Oh well, in a couple months I'll be talking about a great evening of cross-country skiing or a sledding trip. That's the joy of Alaska's four seasons.
