Kimberly to Duncan

we started down by Kimberly
a re-route for the Brucetrail unfortunately a private property owner 
took permission away to go over his land on the top

3.8km was added to the trail, most of it road
and steep

we put our yacktracks on early

roads are not bad to hike in the winter

we came to the bush section, lots of snow

south of the dot was a natural pass

a picture of me

but the pass looked so much more amazing looking back

then we found there was ice underneath the snow
and the girls slid down for a bit
so much fun

following was a challenging part of the trail

followed by easy road hiking

we saw about 10 deer running

Made it to Duncan

Rumination Tags

Do you remember that we put all new tags on our cows

well...they were the wrong ones

so we had coffee in the barn

changed all the tags

recorded new numbers and entered them in the computer
this was not fun
although it was much easier because it was so recently done
