Interlochen Golf Course: Mother Nature's Thanks-giving feast, 3" snow to ski & didn't have to drive 2 hrs to Lakes of the North GC & back. Bay Meadows is NOT OPEN to skiers during hunting season, so enjoyed the woods at Interlochen GC instead (only 10 mins from home), following animal tracks in the snow, skiing figure 8s around the trees, another double 18-hole ski. Although it was wet snow at 36F, it wasn't sticking, so didn't need EZ Glide or my scraper. And, saw Bryce & Paula H Dreeszen there since they live close by, too.

Can't believe it's been 24 years since I started xc skiing & racing Michigan Cup! I am so thankful for the memories we've made together & treasure the friendships we've shared! Happy, happy Thanks-giving to all of you!
