The Coast Mountain Trail Running Spring Scavenger Hunt started this week. I assume any interested Attackpointers have already signed up but it's not too late if you'd like a pandemic distraction in March and April. http://www.trailseries.ca/spsh21/
I hiked on ice and waded through heavy snow in Palgrave Forest as I did the Alphabet challenge. I had to find something that started with each letter of the alphabet. To make sure I stayed out long enough, I decided to find the letters in order, which was optional. I discovered how many things in the forest start with the same few letters! (Birch, Beech, Branch, Bench, Bark...) I regretted leaving my Dogs behind because "D" was a surprisingly tough letter to find. They had tried very hard to tell me that before I left.
Glad I didn't meet anyone because I talked to myself the whole time, naming everything I saw!
