Anyway, being a Saturday and the first day of a three day weekend, the parking lot was jam packed at the Moseley Estate (Maudslay State Park). Lots of cross-country skiers and families with sleds in tow. I never realized that it would be that popular a destination with snow cover.
'A' and I struggled to walk down the lane to the area where Helen's house used to be. We tried keeping to gently walking flat-footed in the path flattened by skis. With a good deal of care only about every fifth or sixth footstep sank deep in the snow. It made walking very difficult and tiring, and ankles and legs began to ache by the time we had reached the house site. Having endured enough of that walking nonsense, we turned to head back to paved road and simpler exploration.
