750 Foot Vertical: A True Winter Playground
My mind is absent of the responsibilities that wait for me at the bottom of the mountain.
The ageless beauty of the Northern Ontario landscape captures me and enables me to escape. It is my first run of the day.
From my seat atop the peak, I strategically plot my course of decent focusing on each line of the unmarked, groomed trail in front of me.
I take one last deep breath. The cloud of exhalent is rich with excitement and anticipation.
