Skiing Gooseberry Falls State Park
We couldn’t believe how incredibly beautiful the landscape was around us. It was late on Christmas Eve and our son Adam and I skied to an overlook high above Lake Superior. We already had a full evening. We attended Christmas Eve service, ate a wonderful supper, opened presents and spent time with family. This Christmas was especially nice because we got to see our future granddaughter. Rebecca is in the process of adopting a three month old little girl named Adeline.
Now it is late and we are moonlight skiing. We are surrounded by birch, the ghostly shadows of the trees zip by as we glide over the snow. Adam asked, “Was that a wolf?” The sound was from a distance so it was hard to tell. We decided to take a break and try howling to see if the wolves would respond. A pack of wolves have been hanging around the park and many skiers have seen their tracks. Karla and I saw one of the wolves earlier in the week.
