I'm quite interested in the owl, being a birder. However, because some people don't respect the distance requirements for owls, it's pretty common practice in the birding community to not post this sort of sighting widely. However, if you could give me more specific information on location, I'd appreciat it. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Me and some awesome folks
Arrived WBC at 9:30 am. Parking lot was just starting to fill up. Temperature around -14°C with soft snow gently falling but rose to about -11°C by the time we finished. The falling snow gave the hills a misty sepia winter postcard effect. It was really quite lovely.
One counter-clockwise loop around Loggers/East Crystal Line, and then clockwise around Moose Loop. We didn't find a moose today, but we did spot a tiny fluffy owl tucked in a tree-top.
I second the commendations to the groomers. The trails were cleared and in excellent shape, considering the relatively thin base. There were a a few roots poking out here and there, but nothing major. The trails were well-covered, and I felt very safe going up and down hills. Job well-done and THANK YOU!
