Returning from a Nordic ski resort in genteel decline …

This resort was in Northern Minnesota, along the Gunflint Trail. Could be anywhere though; every one we’ve visited in the past 15 years has had better days.

Lovely times when there is snow, but always with some melancholy. The world has moved on. There’s not enough consistent snow cover to sustain Nordic skiing in North America.

It was a beautiful sport – especially on narrower classic trails through woods. Our snowless winters feel longer for its passing.

Off the grid I discover new iOS bugs. Choosing an alarm I’m given a list of tunes, but turns out many are not on device. Had to choose from playlist.

Apple assumes unlimited high speed data in its designs now.
