This photo was taken last winter at Beaver Brook Wildlife Area in northwestern Wisconsin, which has some very nice cross-country ski trails. The weather was rather brutal while we were in the area and on the “warm” day with a high temperate of -3°F, we went cross-country skiing. While the temperature was bitter cold, at least there was no wind and there was even a little sun. This photo was taken in the late afternoon as the sun was disappearing. Not surprisingly, we had the ski trails to ourselves and it was quite peaceful.
