Last weekend I joined many old friends to honor the life, friendships, and outdoor accomplishments of the late Dave Duncanson. Two years ago Dave skied approximately 100K of the groomed trails of the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation in Jackson NH — in one day! Last Saturday, most of the 40 to 50 folks who showed up, followed more modest distances on the track. The weather and the snow were ideal (V40 wax) , and the grooming at Jackson was immaculate. So what else is new?
This little angel on skis was probably not among the Duncanson celebrants but she was worthy of a photograph for her outfit, rosy cheeks, and terrific ski skating technique. If anyone can identify her please let me know!

Today, sledding specialist Molly Rachel Mozell of the Galvin Middle School Olympic Team set two course records on the hill behind the Bear Hill Country Club. Mozell hurtled down the icy course on Green Plastic Sled and Plastic Inflatable Tube a distance over 500 meters before coming to a stop, as measured by the most accurate Russian Digisled instrumentation.
Even after a day of perfect nordic skiing in Carlisle, MA with my daughter and winter at peak goodness, it is nice to know that spring flowers like these will be in our gardens in April. Currently, these daffodils are in my dining room.
