Tip: Use j/k to move up and down.
At the end of winter break, a few friends and I
to try our luck at cross-country skiing. A few of us had never gone
cross-country skiing before, though we were lucky to have some good
Gwendolyn and Ai, happy and warm. Obviously this was before any actual skiing.
Jonas and Jesse get ready.
Jeff and Sarah brought their crazy dog, Sequoia, who roughly as tall as the snow.
Although Sequoia wasn't nearly as big as her namesake, she was more photogenic than the rest of us, thus, many pictures of Sequoia.
Svend and Jonas showed us how cross-country skiing is supposed to work.
Jesse gazes in rapt adoration while Svend and Jonas demonstrate the proper XC technique. Sarah is brought to her knees with awe.
The hills weren't that steep, but all of us n00bs fell on most of them anyway.
Trevor demonstrates the perfect wedge.
Sarah demonstrates a wedge.
Ahh, warm hat.
Jeff: 'Look, it's something! Covered with ice!'

Obligatory post-winter-activity beer and pizza.
And... then we decided to make a cranberry cake. Ai insisted that we cut every single cranberry in half. Trevor tried to conceal his skepticism.
Five hours later, Jesse finally reassembled the 216 magnetic spheres into a single cube. I have no idea how he took this photo, because the rest of us had long since gone to sleep.
