-14C today ... -24C with the windchill.
Rather than staying inside where it was warm, Gord and I went snowshoeing at Crawford Lake today. It was a Single Horizons event. Crawford Lake is about an hour NW of us on the other side of Milton.
There were about 20 of us and Sarah and Sarah were our guides. We followed the yellow trail through the woods. It was about 2.5 kms and took us about an hour and a half.
Because the trails were frozen, we used the newer style of snowshoes since they had steel grips on the bottom so we could dig in. And I didn't fall once!
Here's Crawford Lake. Yes, it was as cold out as it looks. But as long as we kept moving, it was okay.
Here's Gord and me at the look off (look how rosy our cheeks are!):
Here's our group at the look off:
We came across some coyote skat. You can tell it's coyote because of the white bunny fur :(
Yep, Chia kitty came with us.

Sarah, on the left, was a fabulous knowlegeable guide!
Back at the Visitor's Centre, LeeAnn had lunch waiting for us ... sandwiches, salads, water, oranges, cookies and chips/pretzels.
As much as I whine about the cold, it was a fun day to be outside!
