Wednesday snowshoeing

I think I have come to terms with winter outdoors here in the Slocan. Unless I am willing to drive for a minimum of 1.5 hours, I have to snowshoe on roads. It’s just the way it is.

There is the possibility of hitching a snowmobile ride now and then, but roads it must be. The alternative is to stay indoors.

Not gonna happen!

So today I met up with Sheila and Ann and we snowshoed on a road (!) It was a slog of about 700 metres up on those long switchbacks. I’d say two-thirds was breaking trail and it was hard work. We eventually got to a sort of viewpoint – and that was about it. As Sheila and Ann said, the road down was very, very long.

It was absolutely a case of “Are we there yet?”

On the bright side, we saw sun because we rapidly rose above the valley cloud layer. And we moved our bodies even though I still have some interesting sore spots from my exciting ski outing two days ago.

I had time to myself – time to think. Most of my thinking was about Sandra. Of course. Carrying her with me.

Leaving soon for Vancouver again.
