  Skied every possible skiable corner of Afton today. Nice tracks with plenty of coverage throughout. Tracks at prairie loop were soft today compared with the lower portions of the park, but I'm not complaining! Lots of wildlife out and about, including deer, rabbits, a big pileated woodpecker, and female pheasant.

  Most of the prairie up top had tracks set and just a couple bare spots. The 1 mile downhill was extremely slow which is rare! Wasn't a bad thing - just wasn't expecting it to be slow. Once we got done and took the old railroad path north there were no tracks and it wasn't flattened. No good way to get back up so took our skis off and hiked back up to the prairie on the edge of Afton. Up top we had about a 1/2 mile before we got back to the groomed paths. Still a fun day. I recommend just staying on the prairie. Didn't make it to the beginner loop since we started up at prairie.

  There is plenty of snow at Afton State Park. The last snow dropped significantly more snow here than just a few miles north. However, there is no grooming so my skis were occasionally slicing through the soft snow to the gravel. It would be great if the groomers could just roll the trails to help firm up the snow. These are great trails in a beautiful setting.
