Yesterdays trip to Diabase Lake

Went in to Diabase yesterday to see what the trail looked like.  For one thing I was having trouble with the 1.5 in. or more with the snowshoes going under the crust with every step.  Finally got to the lake and it was a bit better going,  Somebody had been doing some fishing there but not recent.  Took a couple of pics and headed back to the trail as I got closer to the shore there was a gap right at the shore I walked over to it and fell thru the ice with one snowshoe and when it hit the bottom it was muck and the shoe had got under the ice. The water didn't even get in to my boot but it took some time to get out of the mud and under the ice I poked the hole a bit larger to pull out the shoe still on my foot.  Lesson learned.

Yesterdays snowshoe trip to McIntosh Lake

The day before it snowed the wind was blowing all over there may have been 15cm of snow.  The next day it was still blowing all over, I started at Hedlund marsh west of town and headed for the lake.  There was snowmobile trail right up to the lake which helped snowshoeing.  Here are a few pics along the way.

Today we are expecting lots of snow this afternoon and tomorrow

Had taken some pics a week ago just as the sun was going down, the sun on the high cloud made the living room lite up.

Warmer today but will get colder

Yesterday out on the snowshoes of the Bouche Rd.  It is not plowed out had my new snowshoes they are a lot lighter than the wood ones I have used for years and made them myself.  These are called Tubbs very light and easy to put on.  Will see how they work the snow was up to my knees with the shoes but the snow was very fluffy.  Even the wood ones would do the same, to some pics too.
