You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

1 January 2004: Grand Fuey and the forest of Bois de la Sauge

Darting up through the forest of Grand Fuey, Kristin stumbles upon a large limestone hole in the forest floor.

The narrator wends a wily way up through the Bois de la Sauge, unaware that tree limbs are entangled in the backpack.

Not far from Mont de Bière Devant, time for snowshoes on.

A short cut

The Snowshoe Zombie approaches

Go away, Snowshoe Zombie!

. . . or help me up.

Let's go home then.

You make dinner.
