Warm again, with snow flurries all day. No sunshine. No frozen digits. A classic ski with Sue and Susan from P12 (Meech) to the Fire Tower and back.
Waxing was pretty much spot on with lilac (or is it violet?) wax not being too sticky today. (Just.)
After checking the fire at McKinstry, we made it to the Fire Tower, the most distant part of this section of Gatineau Park.
Then it was back to McKinstry Cabin for lunch. There were very few people about today.
It took us a shade over an hour to return to P12 on excellent trails in fresh snow.
For the record: P12 (Meech) > #40 > #1 > McKinstry Cabin (elevenses) > Fire Tower > McKinstry Cabin (lunch) > #1 > #40 > P12 = 25.5 km, 568 metres ascent, taking 4 hours 6 mins (3.34 moving time)
Later: Fish and chips at the Riverside pub.
