Winter recreation

Winter recreation possibilities

It's hard to imagine an acreage anywhere that offers more winter recreation possibilities than the Harsin place, a picture-postcard setting nestled in the rolling bluffs above the Missouri River near Blair, Nebraska.

On one chilly February Saturday, Darren and Sue Harsin and their sons, Zach, Josh and Drew, played ice hockey, sledded, jogged, hiked and rode horseback.

An armload of rocks the size of cantaloupes were retrieved from the edge of the frozen pond, then placed -- two at each end of the ice -- for makeshift goals. A tennis ball served as a puck. Boots became skates.
