A Weekend On Rainy

The Wasatch was Blessed with Heavy Snowfall


Just when I thought it was all over and gave up all hope, the Wasatch was blessed with heavy snowfall (2 to 3 feet in areas) of our usual preference…high density, low moisture fluffy greatness. Although this season was pretty terrible for me for many reasons, just one good day outdoors with friends is enough to remind me how much magic surrounds me every day.

Wool Saved My Life: Part I

It was a morning like any other.


Just your typical Upstate New York polar vortex bringing the air temperature somewhere well below zero. It was however, a gorgeous day with blue skies and green pines and there was fresh snow on the ground. I decided to go for a jaunt on cross country skis through our family’s backwoods out to the lake for some crisp air and exercise. Because it was so cold, I layered up. I put on some Wool Knee Socks with long underwear and topped with a wool sweater, jacket and cap to keep me cozy as I began to traverse the woodland trail.
