i have nt been too lucky to take pics in the last two week ends .so here a few ''old pics '' from winter 06.samething for mooses ,probably my worse summer since 00.at this time of the year normally ,i m around 400,maybe 150-175 since may.

last saturday took my 4 w to go to see friend at night .half a mile from my camp ,saw a pair of eyes in the darkness ,1 moose ,quarter mile further ,there was one big female walking parallel to the road ,saw her at the last sec ,passed about 8 ' from her .always go slowly at night ,too dangerous.

thanks again and enjoy the pics while we are all waiting for snow !!!

Groomer, the sad :o( part about looking at the pictures of you grooming the trails.

Back here in the states, if we had the surpluse snow that you put to the side of the trails, we would not need any from mother nature.

hi gtse800 !!!

ha !! ha !! on some pics it looks like i throwing the snow outside the trail ,but i spreading the snow on the trail .when there s snow drifts ,the ''trick'' you must spread the snow on the trail ,so the trail is going higher every weeks and the drifts will be smaller.

in some curves i do it on purpose ,throw the snow outside .why !!! less snow in a curve, the ''kickers '' or ''whoops '' will be smallers.better for you and less work for me !!! ha !! ha !!!

saw on that on other site that some clubs in the us ,keep some snow outside the curves ,just in case .i don t do that .

Here are a couple pic's of interest, however they are from the states, Dixiville Peaks.

I thought it was interesting to see ice formed out in the middle of nowhere, like it fell out of the sky.

it must have been a fresh water spring gushing out or something.

Hey Groomer, awesome pics! Someone told me there are alot of Wolves around Riviere Du Loup(supposedly means river of the wolves) and parts of the Gaspe. Have you seen any?

hi zeusand !!!

i used to see a few every years ,but seldom i see them.saw 9 coyotes 2-3 week ends ago in the area of my camp .those we re the first one since a few years .when i m at my camp if i take care to listen at night ,can hear a few ''barking ''.i posted 2 on post 15.those are small coyotes.

my boss is a trapper and i know he catch probably between 40 and 75 every automn after moose hunting .

and you re right : loup means wolf .so i guess there s a lot in that area .rdl is 150 miles west from home.
