Shedding Layers

It's amazing how much heat you generate even when it's cold outside. We both had to shed a couple layers of clothing. Even the hats had to go eventually. But keep those layers handy, you'll need them when you take a break.

Old Pine Lake in Winter

It was 20 below last night but it warmed up to about 10 degrees by noon. We donned our snowshoes and headed out on the North Country Trail in the Chippewa National Forest near Remer, MN to Old Pine Lake, a.k.a. No Name Lake. The low winter sun casts long shadows on the frozen waters of the lake. The snowshoeing was perfect, an unbroken trail of 12 inch powder.
