About Today’s Photo:
We skied in an inch or two of fresh snow up at Camel’s Hump Nordic yesterday. There were many kinds of tracks to be seen including this fine set up fisher tracks loping up the hill (towards the camera) and across the trail. The photo below shows the tracks up close with my ski for scale.
