... as once you get going it can get very hot. The spot he took us too had no one else around, hard to believe that in summer it is a golf course. It has about 3 m of snow coating it! We had some of the local trees and wildlife footprints pointed out along the way, mostly fox and rabbit but we saw weasel tracks as well. The actual walking is quite easy once you get the hang. I only fell over once and that was because I was trying to stand on one ...

... bottles. The owner Marina is a gem, she is very informative and went through lots of the stuff to do, how to get cheaper deals and most importantly where to eat. Dinner was great, we went to a small place close by called Matsubaya And had their specials. I had the beef and rice set with miso and pickles and Scotty had the pork fillet and rice set. They were so yummy and hearty which is what we needed. Good value too. With full bellies we got into our big puffy warm beds and ...
