A chill nips at your face as you glide along a forest trail, the only sound you hear emanates from your nordic skis pressing against the snow. An occasional thump breaks the rhythm when accumulated snow falls from overburdened tree branches to the ground.
Your skis swish turns down a pristine slope blanketed in snow. Above, the sun shines boldly in the sky. Below, the expanse of a high desert valley spreads before you. Around you, a few friendly folks wave a hello as they pass. You smile, taking in the winter wonderland, outdoor play and sense of peace.
