This was Knut's 4th year competing in the USA's largest cross country ski race. He placed in the top third, which was good but he fears he will lose his spot in wave 1 for next year. Having a baby this winter hasn't been the best for training. Of course he didn't have the baby physically, but his sleep and time has been affected this winter, and that has made an impression on his time. He's happy with it though, and he finished another year and that is no small thing.
Here's the abandoned homestead between Knut's aunt and uncle's house and ours.
Here's a picture of our "house" about 1/3 a mile away. Can you see it? Me neither.
