Race Evaluation

LGOC Lac Mulvihill, Gatineau Park: Long advanced

boyle

1.
2. On snowshoes, I started from #1, control nearest parking lot, on a knoll long covered over by a giant deadfell tree.
3. Compared to just 2 cars in parking lot yesterday, there were dozens today. However, few skiiers saw me as the flotation was awesome and I didn't need trails.
4. Keskinada Loppet distance markers are up.
5. Overland though I never saw trail that I crossed and finding a ford over rushing stream was tough.
6. Shot up along very old fence line NW of control.
7. S, S, S: down, cross trail, ford stream, up, between notch, down, cross trail, E of swamp, straight in to bright sun, but the rock is impossible to sight under snow.
8. WNW, parkway to depression, then micro-navigate W, cliff, cliff, pit, swamp: it was so easy this time.
9. Next time I must set bearing or S to parkway and back up the hill.
10. W to trail, then N on trail but just like Kingsmere map, I can't find the trail-side rocks under snow.
11. With crusty snow on ?beach?, I dared to speed around S side of pond & straight to cliff.
12. Fly N, catch trail, pass many skiiers on road, straight to rock.
F. Parking lot, then N.
