Stellar Snowshoe Hike
With a half metre of fresh snow having fallen over the past few days, it was a wonderland of flocked trees and whipped cream landscapes in Strathcona Park today. After so many years of snowshoe hiking up here, one would think we'd covered it all, but lo and behold Brian (trip coordinated by Anne) led us along Battleship Lake, across Kooso Lake, and through a heretofore unexplored cleft in the land - a secret ravine - to an astonishing view and lunch spot over Lake Helen Mackenzie.
Our group continued across Lake Helen Mackenzie and again broke trail along a new route that joined the lake to Unnamed Lake on the Helen Mackenzie hiking trail. 4 1/2 hours approximately, and a stellar experience for all!
