XC Skiing - Great Camp Santanoni

It was a sunny crystal-clear blue-sky day, with temps in the mid-40s. What better time to get out for some not-quite-spring skiing? Holly and I skied the 10-mile round trip to Great Camp Santanoni, near Newcomb, NY, just south of the Adirondack High Peaks. The snow was crunchy at first, but softened up nicely as the day went on. The warm temperatures had me skiing in my shirtsleeves, with those even rolled up. It's a beautiful place, and it's nice to see it being restored.
