As to which format to use for future postings to my blog, that is still a bit indefinite. However, what is definite is my belief that blogging can be an effective means to share information with others.
Knowledge gained from information-sharing can move us in new directions and sometimes at a quicker pace than if we're left to our own discovery process. Just think! The concept of the wheel might have caught on much earlier in the history of mankind if the youngster shown in the following cartoon could have shared his knowledge via a blog! :-)
For certain, it's a very farfetched notion to think that a Stone Age blog could have led to a more rapid advancement of "wheel knowledge". However, I recently gained some "real knowledge", as a direct result of modern-era blogging!
A reader of my recent blog about Skiing on Groomed Cross-Country Trails posted a reply which recommended that I try the XC-ski trails at Milan Hill State Park. And, just like the wheel was eventually invented, most likely I would have eventually discovered this XC-ski facility on my own. However, this comment sped up my discovery process, and for that, I'm very grateful!
My XC-Ski Trek at Milan Hill State Park:
All of the above is a very long way of arriving at the presentation of a few snapshots taken during a most delightful day of skiing at Milan Hill State Park. Since snowshoers are also welcome at this facility, the scenes that are shown in these photos can be experienced by those who enjoy this winter sport as well.
