REPORT:

We started the hike with 14 participants. Two of the elder ladies left the group when we crossed D. They could not keep up with the younger ladies. When we got up the steep climb, Christine and Alan took the group to trail 30 but not into the Lafrance ravine avoiding difficult crossings. Meanwhile Michèle and Claude recovering from a bad flue inspected the new bridge at the northern end of the ravine. Then they followed a mink for several minutes but could not get a good picture.  When the group returned to the Pilon ravine, Claude and Michèle continued with them to the parking. So the hike was 7 km and everyone wore snowshoes.
