Ski day at Parc Maisonneuve. I’ve never seen so many people at this parc out for skiing and snowshoeing.
The tracks in the photo shows how popular the ski trails have been today. Thankfully the tracks were freshly laid this morning and the walkers had mostly respected them and not walked on them.
But I’m sure by tomorrow, especially without fresh snow fall these tracks will nearly obliterated.
Everyone wants to be out in the park and you can’t blame them. I’m one of them!
Joining (what feels like) every other cross-country skier in Montreal at Caps Saint Jacques today.
Again, more people than I’ve ever seen at the park. I feel a little sad that we can’t stop and rest in the chalet at the wood burning stove and drink tea. But mostly I’m happy just for the chance to be out.
Also part of me finds all the people annoying but I’m part of the people.
Such a weird winter, both in terms of weather (warm and little snow) and global pandemic.
Before I started canoeing around Montreal I didn’t differentiate between the different rivers that flow in this area. Technically it still feels like one river to me, the Saint Lawrence River, Fleuve Saint-Laurent, but where the water goes around the big islands of Montreal and Laval it takes on different names.
This is on a little island in the Riviere des Prairies.
Today we dropped off our daughter at a friends for a quarantine outdoor hang-out and took advantage of easy West Island access to the water.
X-country skiing in Parc Maisonneuve, Montreal with my friend Elizabeth.
Making tracks...This is actually a hockey rink that hasn't been plowed yet in the snowstorm.
