We stopped for lunch in a warming hut at one of the big trail junctions; inside, a ski patrol volunteer and a trail monitor named Sherry tended a wood stove. They were very eager to share their world of nordic skiing with us and to advise us on good trails for beginners. When we left, two Gray Jays perched nearby on their skis to see if we had any parting gifts for them.
