Sister in Law sent me this beautiful image from Vero Beach last night.

Any of you the rider?


I wish it was me, but I have a chilly winter paddle on slate for this weekend.

Luc - awesome. I just haven't braved it this winter. I was telling a colleague from the East that we get snow two weeks a year. As you well know its been 2 months and its still snowing. At least its not stopping you. And North Shore snow-shoeing has been fantastic this season. We did a night-shoe up Seymour that I'm going to do again asap.

Yes that is a change from the very mild past two winters.

I used to snowshoe quite a bit at Seymour but now it has become such a jungle with everybody coming there. Even when arriving early you get the groups of 20 people hugging the trail disguised like to do glaciers. Same for the driving. Surprised there are not more cars in the ditch. Remind me when the Grind became fashionable in Richmond and people started to show up in city shoes....

Beauty pics from the coast. You guys are getting a ton of snow this year. We went close to a week without snow in the Koots, but it's been snowing a fair bit over the past few days.

Some pics from late afternoon on Arrow Lake. Nice that days are getting longer. I was tooling around in the log booms that are arranged for about a kilometre on one side of the lake. Not where you want to be paddling a carbon race board in the maze, but the logs break up the chop and make paddling upwind easier on this section.

That is not something I would do. You never what might move the logs....

The log booms are all linked together and tied off to shore, and each boom is wrapped in cables. Occasionally a boom will get separated from a tethering cable from a storm, or whatever. I usually cut through a wide spot in the booms if I'm on that side or paddle away from the booms closer to shore in the break water. The eagles, herons, and otters like the log booms, so better wildlife viewing closer to the booms on that side of the lake. Always that chance that a cable(s) could break, but I feel safer closer to those booms than when I was actually on a logging crew. Everyday was a shit show.
