Update - 2/11/2016
Temperatures have fallen back down to more of a 'norm' for this time
of year, Actually a little below the norm for this weekend, especially
on Saturday when the mercury will barely top the zero degree mark.
By the new coming work week temperature highs are to head back up towards
the freezing mark.
These cold temps are preserving the off trail base with a nominam 14"
hard packed depth. The top surface is a hard icy pack nearly able to support
the weight of an adult.
Temperature Highs Friday to be in the mid teens, barely
above zero on Saturday, back to the mid teens Sunday as the days get a
bit warmer for the coming new work week with highs in the mid 20's to low
Temperature Lows should be in single digits to just below zero
for some area's on Thursday night. Friday and Saturday nights temps
plummet to the mid negative teens or lower before the slight warming sneaks
in. Sunday night temps drop to a balmy 4 º. Wind chills should push
temps down to the mid negative 20's and negative teens through to Saturday
Trailways have had a moderately light traffic last weekend and this
week has been relatively light as well.
The Avery trail from Lewsiton has been groomed to prepare things
for the weekend trail traffic.
No significant accumulations are expected for the weekend unless you
call the 2" that is due for Friday night to be significant.
for the next few days

Stay clear of Permethrin
in your insecticide/tick repellent products. It just keeps on killing.
Not only the insect but things that feed on the insect too. Like so many
chemicals, this stuff just doesn't decompose.

They keep a selection of Antler Velvet supplements derived from the
Red Deer raised in New Zealand..
Consider all the minerals and nutrients
the elk uses to get those antlers so flippin' huge and strong in a manner
of mere months. These minerals and nutrients help the body cope with arthritis,
sore joints and muscles, growth factors for bone and muscle health.
From those living with aches and pains to body builders and sports
junkies, it's in there!
Side effects of Elk Antler Velvet usually appear in Autumn which
may include growing antlers, an urge to bugle, scrape the ground and head
butt any thing or any body that comes near your harem. A slight inconvenience
but they do fall off in the spring.
