Skiing Jay Cooke State Park
This morning Noelle and I headed out of Duluth to Carlton to do some skiing at Jay Cooke State Park and get ourselves some Cozy Melts at the Cozy Restaurant and Lounge. We got our food first, and it was delicious as usual. We then proceeded to Jay Cooke to burn off some of the calories we had consumed.
We started at the new park visitor center where we got our annual State Park sticker. We then grabbed our skis and walked them across the swinging bridge to start our ski.
It was a warm day and a few snowflakes fell as we glided our way along a loop on the easy Ridge Trails.
When we finished our easy loop we were ready for some more skiing. We opted to ski the intermediate difficulty Silver Creek Trail which offered some nice steep downhills and then the inevitable tough uphills back to the swinging bridge.
