I was clearing a trapline yesterday, then took a run up a sidecreek. The sun is back down on the river for about an hour now midday, was really great to not mush in the shadows for a bit:
Turned around at top of this stretch to take a shot, river jammed pretty good here during freezeup:
The trail is raised like that cuz of the big thaw we had for a few days in January; all the snow levels sank but trail was harder so it didn't sink as much.
Ran up a side creek for a bit, good going on frozen overflow with a bit of snow on top, a few wet patches. Was hoping to take short vid clip on way back but camera froze up right after this pic:
Temp was -20s, north breeze on way back and is -40 this morning as I post this. Looking fwd to spring mushing in March! Happy trails to all,
