Saturday 23 January 2010 – A Trip to the Champlain Lookout

Ice laden trees in Gatineau Park

No John, this isn’t Egypt, it’s back to weather that’s a reminder of Timperley during the first week of 2010.

Today’s conditions were perfect for a three hour (17 km) slide up Fortune Parkway to Gossips’ Corner and on up the Khyber Pass to Huron Cabin, before heading on to the Western turn and returning to Huron via 1B and the Champlain Lookout.

It was an easy slither in the sun down the Parkway back to the car, then a visit to the Royal Canadian Mint to inspect some of the medals that will be presented at the forthcoming Winter Olympics.

Very impressive they were too.

You've no doubt heard of the 'Where's Willie?' puzzle pictures, we were thinking of a 'Where's Martin?' version - the plan has been scuttled!

Have the ski trails been professionally groomed though, Mike?

John, I hope you enjoyed your Kettleshulme walk. Sorry I couldn't join you...
