Tuesday 6 February 2018 - Snowshoeing at Mont Cascades

Today's route:

Red>Grey>Yellow (see image above) - 5.5 km, 250 metres ascent, 2 hours 20 mins including 30 mins stops.

Helen had some downhill skiing booked at Mont Cascades, where there are no x-c ski trails. So Sue and I borrowed some snowshoes, having left ours in the UK as we never seem to use them here!

Nice woodland (albeit contrived) trails led to viewpoints over the Gatineau River. Despite me having cold hands for a while, having foolishly left my electric gloves at home, it was a lovely little outing with a satisfactory rendezvous at the club house for a late lunch.

Electric gloves!? I will have to investigate.

I'll picture the gloves (mitts actually) in the next posting.
