'Bent and I did an easy ski with our neighbour DR, a new cross-country skier who is a triathlete and snowboard instructor in non-Covid times. It was her first time on narrow, hilly, tree-lined trails and she was cautious but picked it up well. In the final stretch, we made our own tracks through very deep, fluffy snow as the sun set. I love winter.

My final challenge of the Coast Mountain Trail Running Winter Scavenger Hunt was the Resolution Run. We're supposed to do a run or hike, then write down a resolution and complete it within 7 days. We can't claim the badge until we act on our resolution. Last night I finished cleaning and clearing unnecessary stuff from the the laundry room portion of our combined laundry/storage room, which had been neglected. I found an expensive SD camera card in the washing machine filter that neither of us is missing. It doesn't work anymore but we always download our SD cards before we launder them (!) so it's not a big deal.

The Winter Scavenger Hunt has been a blast once again, especially connecting with participants in the private Facebook community, which has been one of the friendliest, most creative, most supportive corners of the Internet over the past two months. People shared their cancer diagnoses, their 5K PBs, their GPS art of Michael Bublé and everything in between. This Challenge was extra fun because I knew more people doing it this time, including a bunch of Attackpointers. We all need some entertainment these days. I'm already looking forward to doing another Summer Scavenger Hunt!
