Had a great cross-country ski in the Cascades today. It was my first of the season – easy with clear blue skies all day. Marilyn Lakes are in the lush forests near Gold Lake in the Willamette Pass area. Our Obsidian group stopped for lunch at a warming hut where we watched the birds – bold and friendly from treats received from skiers and snowshoers.
On the way back to the snow park we marveled at views of Diamond Peak!
