Lac Phillipe Skate Ski

Lac Phillipe is the northern most entry point to the park and about a 45 minute drive from Ottawa.  I normally get up here only once or twice a ski season.  It was my day off, sunny skies, and a quiet drive by myself were in order.

Trails were firm but super excellent shape.

What's so nice about skiing this far north is a sense of isolation.  I think I saw maybe six people the whole day. 

A deer was unlucky.  I didn't see it at first near the side of the trail.

What I did see was this large tuft of hide and hair laying on the trail.  At first I thought a squirrel got smoked by the groomer.  Then I noticed the carnage off in the woods.

Feaux hawk? Most likely a group of coyotes, a couple of wolves or the reclusive Gatineau Yeti brought the poor thing down. 

I was able to take a photo of the normally recluse Gatineau Yeti in the parking lot at O'Brien a couple of years ago.  In the summer it sheds it's fur revealing it's freakish body, yet it still maintains it's foul body odour.

Had it all to myself with a fire already blazing.  Had a bite to eat, dried my jacket and toque and kicked back to relax before the 11 km return trip.
