Dromore

 Today I was hiking the Dromore trail with 12 others, we were out for three hours and travelled 7 km.

 The easiest way down was just sit down and slide.

There were several trees that needed the saw to cut them so they could be moved of the trail.
No wind and a temp of -4 but lots of light snow on the trees.

I have snowshoed though a couple time but the weeds spring right back up. They are some sort of cane, maybe raspberry. Light snow today with light wind and a high temp of -8
