3/16/17 Trail Along Kenduskeg

Snow storm on Tuesday - about a foot of heavy wet snow - but it covered up all the ice.

Yesterday morning- waiting for me to get to work on the drive.


After I cleared the drive we just walked around the neighborhood - didn't take my camera but it was sunny and around thirty degrees.


This morning we went to the nearby snowmobile trail, hoping someone had been on it to pack down the snow. They had and the footing was pretty good for both of us.



Still ice in the stream



A bit further up the trail. Not long after this we saw two snowmobiles coming and I got Kelley off the trail but it was hard for her to move in the snow. The snowmobiles took a bypass , but I realized it would be a problem if we needed to get off again and we turned back.


One spot with a little water that was very muddy - this is her second entry on the way back.


When we started the hike the surface was undisturbed from last night but after a point a sled had broken the crust  and it was  more of a slog for me. Twenty degrees but sun and we got in a little over an hours exercise so not too bad overall.

  1. How much snow did you get overall from the storm? We got 8" and I was happy to get it.

  3. Sounds like it was some pretty hard truckin' at times for both of you. The crust sure does make it a lot of work..
