The trails are freshly snow-covered after the 2 inches from yesterday! By the way, does anyone know what these tracks are from? Looks like a large bird/small dinosaur was wandering the trails... @ Cross Country Ski Headquarters ... See MoreSee Less

Definitely small dinosaur. 😂

I’m going with Dino the dinosaur!

we are coming up this weekend and look forward to trying out our new skis. You only got 2 inches yesterday? I am downstate, we got 8 in the city, I would love to share some with you.

Are the dinosaurs tasty if you catch them? I would think they taste like chicken. New dish at the Stone Turtle Day Lodge: small dinosaur soup!

I like the dinosaur theory. 😄

Emu on the loose? That is a very large turkey, long stretch.

Those look like Turkey tracks. They won't hurt you if you leave em alone. Watch out for train tracks though.

Baby rapture😳

Turkey of course!!
