Pretty hard walking with the snowshoes lately. Take a few steps and the snow collapses every once in a while. The Bouche Rd. is all plowed out so I take the truck park walk 3km and back to the truck. Then park as far as I went last time, Now I'm up near the Osprey Nest going north to the cuts.

On the snowshoes for a couple of days and noticed lots of Snow fleas in the snow, this year they seem to be all over, hadn't seen that many in the snow. Here is a clip from Google about them and some pictures I took.
They are in the snow everywhere this year.

It's been several years since we were snowshoeing quite often in the winter. Back then the trail was all marked with flagging. Since then looking for it took a long time, last fall I did some of it and a bit more the winter. This week I started from the other end at Hedlund marsh up to McIntosh Lake. At the lake there was a cut several years ago and all the trail markers were gone, finally finished joining the other end together. This trail starts up Bouche Rd and ends a Hedlund marsh at the road and walk back on the road to Bouche Rd. Here are some pics I took on the Hedlund/McIntosh end. Next time out will be the first time in along time to go all the way around.

The weather is terrible, had to cancel breaking trail on the snowshoes, lake is full of slush and to top it of we haven't seen the sun for ages. Tempertures have been around 2-5 °C during the day.

This afternoon I started to break trail on the snowshoe trail. It's about 5Km. with a walk on the road to get back at truck. Today I put in about 1.5Km. This hasn't been used for about 2-3 years. Last fall I tagged flagging and did quite a bit of cutting, one area hasn't been tagged at all. Hopefully I will keep at it through January if the weather holds. The trail starts at Bouche Rd and ends at Hedlund marsh.

This must be some kind of record to have 3 Super Moons in one year, although this one was supposed to be a bit smaller. When the moon was coming up it was in the scattered cloud, finally there was a good shot. Enjoy.
