XC Skiing - Featherstonehaugh State Forest

It's almost time for another moonlight snowshoe trip in the coming week, and I needed to check on snow conditions and the progress of the logging operation. So, Holly and I went up to Featherstonehaugh this afternoon and did a leisurely ski around the main 2-mile loop. The snow had the same half-inch crust as at my house from the recent storm, but previous skiers had broken the trail, including the crust, and the snow underneath was actually pretty good. The logging operation is spreading out and impacting more small pieces of the trail, but overall, it's not (yet) a bad place for a nearby ski outing.
