Just me


Had a wonderful day on the Pipestone trails near Lake Louise. It was -2 when I arrived at 11:30 and there had been 2-3 inches of snow overnight and early morning. Flurries continued most of the day making for a lovely soft, quiet ski through the forest.

Headed counter clockwise up the #20, paralleling the Pipestone river. Back via Merlin and over to Hector. The snow tended to clump / ice up a little and some scraping was in order to maximize gliding on the way back :). About zero degrees at 2 PM.

Thanks to Helen for her words of encouragement. I now have a login, so there will be few (valid) excuses for not posting in the future!
