This is another one of the ice sculptures created at the #icemagic festival in Lake Louise last week. This design, meant to resemble a plumbers nightmare, was created by a Canadian team and won third prize. #icemagicfestival
It’s been bitterly cold around here lately and if your feet aren’t warm, you’re going to have a bad day out there when it’s -30 & colder with the windchill. Luckily for me some nice folks over at @baffinworldwide sent me some of their Control Max boots to try out and the last few days have been the perfect test. You can bet with a comfort rating of -70c (!!) on the tag that I was expecting nothing less than an oven on my feet, and these did not disappoint. Even with a pair of cotton socks on yesterday hiking for over an hour, my feet stayed dry and warm and I didn’t feel like I was lugging around a pair of sz.12 bricks either! I’m in a fortunate position in my line of work to be able to be picky with my gear, and these will be part of my winter essentials now for years to come.
