Driving up Highway 40 into Kananaskis, it was brown. Brown, brown brown. It wasn't even worth taking a photo of. Some of you were there! You saw it! We were past the point of no return, too far away to turn back. Then, the light rain/snow turned into snow. Upon reaching the trailhead, there was well, slush.
At the trailhead we found another group of veteran snowshoers that had just finished up and were packing up as we geared up. Everyone got set up with a set of snowshoes and some of us even had poles. They were the most useful things on the trail. As the beautiful snow fell, it also began to attach itself to our snowshoes and poles were the perfect thing to remove it with.
Dinner at Original Joe's in Cochrane after slushy roads out of Kananaskis. Ladies, if you didn't make it out snowhoeing this year, we'd love you to strap on a pair next year!
Sarah and Cory have a passion for hiking and being out in nature. There is no feeling quite the same as standing on the top of a mountain, sitting by a hidden lake, the jelly legs at the bottom of a steep descent, the sun on your face or the wind in your hair. Even our children have come to love it!
