Day Two summary: a lot of pushing and patchy weather

Today has been a mixed bag on the trail.

Light snow this morning at Skwentna, followed by glorious sunny skies at Shell Lake and then a massive ground blizzard going into the Finger Lake lodge checkpoint.

Progress from Shell to Finger is very slow, with punchy trails covered in new snow.
