Snowy Singletrack at Sunset

I managed to get in a little time on the trails after work today. The sun was setting and the light was flat in the woods. Hard to see all the contours in the snow. Or where the soft spots met the firm spots.

After a week of bitter cold we had a day time temp in the double digits, 11F/-12C degrees. Even the windchill was above zero this afternoon at 1F/-17C degrees. After a stretch of below zero weather, these temps felt downright pleasant.

The trails you see here are in Brewers Park. A section of new mountain bike trails built only one year ago. They happen to be on a wooded ridge directly above my neighborhood.

The view from the trail looking east towards downtown Duluth, the Harbor and Lake Superior beyond. This was taken only minutes before sunset. The last light of the day. Another good day to be out. And again I had the trails to myself.

Happy Riding

    Beautiful photos, and that view is stunning! You make being outside in the cold look quite appealing.

      There are basically two groups of people that live here. Those who hate winter. And those that embrace winter. I think you already know which group I fall into.
