Descriptor of the day: Smooth. It remained overcast all day with very light snow falling. Kick and glide was very good as we started counterclockwise on Pipestone, a bit of new snow on good tracks. There was time at the junction to Mud Lake for a group photo:

No views of any peaks at Mud Lake. We cruised up to the north end where we had lunch, then down the west side of Pipestone and down Hector:
