FARGO - Annette and Annise Montplaisir let the stars guide their path on brisk winter nights.

The mother-daughter duo cross-country ski and ride their horses while most of the Midwest is cozying up inside.


"It's so pretty - the moon is out, and it's really calm," Annise, 17, says.

Night and early morning are Annette and Annise's favorite times to be outside together.

"It's really peaceful and the air is crisp," Annise says.
