Snowshoe Adventure

Photos from our snowshoe at Joffrey Lakes, just north of Whistler. Breaking trail for 3.5 hrs, with some pretty solid climbs and sketchy descents, followed by an epic 45km journey in the pitch dark up a snow-covered, pot-holed ridden road in search of a hidden hot springs. Armed with head-lamps and swim suits, we trudged through the dark forest to find the springs (we probably didn't even need the lamps as the steam emanating from the woods was enough of a sign). It was a long day, but definitely another memorable annual Whistler snowshoe for the four of us.

Piping hot sulphur bath in the middle of nowhere = heaven

Oh, and before someone comments on the beer can behind me, that was NOT mine!

You have an awesome blog.

I was out snowshoeing with my two standard poodles this morning.
