The dogs needed a walk; but first we had to bundle up.
I put on knee high socks, stretchy pants, jeans and over-pants, sweater, sweat jacket, winter coat and neck covering, ear muffs, gloves, mittens and warm boots.
Then I had to dress the dogs in their coats with warm neck coverings added.
And off we went to the Jack Lake trail.
While there is no snow in the woods, in many places water has seeped from the slopes onto the roads then from the roads and down into the woods below.
We had to give sections like this a wide berth.
We stayed in the woods to avoid the biting winds and the dogs tore about following their noses but never out of my sight.
Every time I wanted to take a photo I had to pull off my gloves and mitts and my hands FROZE!
We explored a few kilometres of woodland trails over a couple of hours.
As long as we kept moving, the dogs and I were fine. It was only when back in the car that I noticed by very ruddy cheeks in the rear view mirror and briefly pondered the possibility of frost bite.
