In the morning I saw an animal walking across the lake.  I speculated that it might be a fox and Timo later confirmed that this was the most likely.

I managed to leave Kÿlkeinen by 0930, but attempts to go South across Hämeenvaara proved impossible.  Eventually I returned to the kennels and dumped my bag.  I then headed to Jänisvaara for lunch and at about 1500 drove North to Juusi’s place which is very impressive with lots of potential but clearly still needs a lot of work.  Took the opportunity to have a shower.

Overall the dogs were reluctant to go when the snow was soft, but did better on firmer surfaces.
