This weekend is the annual Caledonia Classics Dogsled races. Along with the races, our town also is putting on a Winterfest, lasting all week into next weekend. We headed down to the lake yesterday morning to check out the festivities.
The temperature yesterday morning registered a bitter -30c, but had warmed up to -22c by the time we headed down. Brrr! Everyone was so bundled up, that it was hard to recognize people. With scarves, hats, and sunglasses, the only skin showing on most people were their noses.
We didn't stay too long, as it was so cold. I headed back at 1pm, when the air temperature had warmed up to -11c, but a fierce wind had begun to blow, making it feel even colder than the morning. More work had been completed on the ice sculptures then. The sculptor was making the symbols for the four Nak'azdli clans, Bear, Beaver, Caribou, and Frog.
