XC Skiing - Camp Saratoga, Wilton

Today was surprisingly over 50 degrees in the morning, with wind and rain expected later, so Holly and I got out for a quick ski around the trails at Wilton Wildlife Preserve's Camp Saratoga. There had been a snowshoe race on Saturday, and the trails had not been regroomed since then, so the surface was hard-packed and fairly wet snow, with lots of twigs and pine cones. Not the best of conditions, but it was a day not to be wasted, especially with another deep-freeze tonight and more freeze/thaw cycles over the next week. The days of soft powder are now gone, but we hope only temporarily.
