Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Skiing the Zillmer Yellow Trail

Skiing the Zillmer Yellow Trail as the sun fades

Cross-country skiing as the sun sets is an enjoyable way to spend the last fading hours of day. The only sound that resonates in the forest is the scraping of skis in the powdery snow. Stop for a moment and it is haunting how quiet the woods are. You wish you could stay here forever, and the words of Robert Frost echo in your heads: “The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have” cross-country ski trails to finish.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
