City of the Lakes Loppet 2013

What a great weekend for a cross country ski festival in Minneapolis.  This year’s loppet free style ski race had 772 skiers skating from Wirth Park to Uptown. That’s 33k or about 20 miles through the Minneapolis Park and Recreation system’s trails and lakes. As you can see it was both competitive and fun.

    What brave hearts! Looks like, if you like to ski, it was great fun and some serious competition. The sunshine made it look very festive. Go Jennifer! Hugs, Mom
