For Jeb’s 27th Birthday we went back to State Forest State Park in Walden, CO. We rented a cabin for the weekend and brought cross country skis.
The view from our cabin was pretty awesome.
This is how we spent the majority of our cross country skiing time, on our butts! Being decent at downhill skiing does not translate that well to cross country skiing.
If we thought cross country skiing was difficult at nordic centers, it was way more challenging in the backcountry on ungroomed trails.
We also had the fun surprise that our cabin was heated with a wood stove… so either the fire would go out and we would be freezing, or the fire would get going too strong, and we’d be sweating profusely. But these views made it worth it!
Happy 27th Birthday Jeb!
