This is Mary!
Today i met up with her and Hillary.
They had gone camping last night.
At noon this morning, I set out skiing from the highway, and Mary and Hillary said by that time they had just crawled out of the tent. They had a 30 below zero night.
When i meet them we are all skiing in a few less layers of clothing, around -5C now.
It turnes out a warm sunny day.
37 Mile is the name of the Creek. And I think it is the name of the first lake you encounter at the end of the trail. I have been only that far once last summer. (see bear story)
This was my first time on the trail in the winter. It is a beautiful trail, for the scenery and condition of the trail. It is well used by dogsleds and snowmobiles. I saw 4 dog teams today, no skidoos, so really not that busy.
At the crossing of the creek, i am happy to find open water! We sit down beside it, enjoying the rushing of the water. The boulders, yellowish, brown and grey at the bottom showing. We love the way the ice formed on the sides, some places with big crystals, or wavy white edges.
And here as big leaves.
