X-C Skiing 1:55:14  16.21 km (7:07 / km) +77m 6:57 / km
CSM Touring Virtual Leg 3: 16.2 km at Wesley Clover and the Winter West Trail
Ski with Natasha, Colleen and Robbie starting at 4:30 at the Kanata Nordic start area. Wesley Clover trails while nicely up and down did not have the best grooming, mostly due to heavy weekend club traffic and thinning snow base. Colleen did spot a deer in here though. So we switched to the Equestrian Park part of the trail (which was great) and the free part of the winter west trail. Contrary to the Loch Lommond song, taking the low road did not get Colleen and I to the meet up junction before Robbie and Natasha in our impromptu "race". After leaving the loop we went west on the trail towards the March farm. Robbie spotted a deer at Watts creek on the way back. At the Carling spur junction head lights went on as we finished down the TCT and used the Dana trail spur back entrance to the KN parking lot....
Andrew did a walk and run while we skied and had the car nice and toasty for when we arrived. NIce temp aft/eve ~ -4C.
Chinese food for all in the nick of time upon return....:)
