Spirit Magazine - November 2013 - (Page 22)

From the Editor TAKE TWO Dear Reader, My son, George, understands winter better than most people. No one enjoys the snow more. And yet, few people get into bodysurfing more than George does, either. The cool thing about winter is he can do both on consecutive days-in different places, of course. George works as a ski patrolman and instructor in Jackson, New Hampshire, the East's largest cross-country skiing area. You'll find it two and a half hours north of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and on page 79 of this issue. (We chose to highlight Jackson as a destination months ago, before George got work there.) It's the only place I know where you can ski across a covered bridge. George plans to take a break this winter by flying to Key West, Florida. He wants to do what his father did before him: post contrary photographs on Facebook taken a day apart, showing him wading in the Gulf of Mexico and skate-skiing Jackson's beautiful Ellis River 22 SPIRIT NOVEMBER 2013 Trail. My pictures were taken 24 hours apart. Knowing George, he'll try to one-up me by taking his on the same day. Maybe we can start a meme. (Twofers? Hotcolds? Sandsnows?) Think you could contribute? Go to our Facebook page (facebook.com/spiritmag) and post your images. It's a worthy yin-yang thing, I believe. "Weather" and "extreme" rarely go together in a pleasant sentence, but they become an adventure when you go to the extreme ends of the American climate. Which is easiest to do in winter. All you need is a boarding pass and a camera. -Jay Heinrichs Editorial Director PHOTOGRAPHY BY © HENRIK TRYGG/CORBIS (SNOW), © LYNN CHRISTIANSEN/CORBIS (BEACH) Trek to twin adventures, then send us your snaps. http://www.facebook.com/spiritmag
