For anyone interested in a real new winter adventure, I highly recommend lake skating. Check out these pictures of Goose Pond in NH yesterday. The entire lake, all 550 acres, was like a hockey rink. Snap a pair of nordic skates onto your cross country ski boots, buck the North wind up to the head of the lake (avoiding frostbite), then turn around and scream down to the other end.
I was a little afraid yesterday to go across the wide part of the lake to get to the other side, but today I am going to do it. As they say, it's not a sport if you can't get killed doing it.
