XC Skiing - Classic (Ungroomed) 2:30:00 [3] 15.0 km (6.0 kph) +407m

Spectacular, chilly day with perfect fluffy snow and a mix of sunshine and snow squalls. 'Bent and I went for a long ski to a high viewpoint where I got out the buttertart that I'd carried along for the occasion. It was so cold that I had to scarf it down quickly so we could start skiing down. We met Bruce and Val King skiing with Richard Ellen; they're all old friends of 'Bent's. We also met and chatted with a skier, John Fallis, and a couple of snowmobilers - Cavan (also a mountain biker) and his friend. It's been ages since I've spoken with so many humans in real life in a 2-hour period. Thank goodness for the great outdoors!

Snowshoeing (Ungroomed) 1:00:00 [1] 3.32 km (18:05 / km) +206m 13:48 / km
shoes: Salomon XA Pro GTX - Black

Snowshoe outing with 'Bent, our neighbours Darcie and Marla, and 5 dogs. Shortly after we started, we saw a dog crossing a snowy field without an owner. Then we ran into neighbours we hadn't met before - Tom and Lisa - and they had met the owner looking for their dog. So we did some detective work as we hiked. We found tracks in a few places but didn't find the dog again. We learned tonight that the dog made her way home after dark. She'd been off-trail a couple of kilometres from home on a very cold day so that was great news.
