Gatineau Park

Trails Skied: #2 (from #40 to #1), #24, #33, #40, #1 (blue), Glide Wax: , Grip Wax:

Another warm sunny day when I started, my route was almost like Jo-Ann's of yesterday. P12=>#40=>#24=>#1=>Wolf bench=>#1=>#24=>#40=>#33=>#2=>P12.

I made it to the Wolf trail bench was interested in seeing how the hill was there, still coverage middle is showing ice, wont be much longer until we have to walk up that part. Trail # 40 at the junction of #24 is showing one rock and a root on my 3rd picture and another small rock after the bench on #40. Another medium size rock was showing on #33, the usual spot on the uphill coming from #40.. Besides that everything else is good.

Most of the parking lots I passed were near empty, I only met 2 skiers during my outing.
