I had no intention of going back to White Queen so soon. Scott even mentioned to me on Wednesday: “Now that we have a track, you can lead a KMC hike.”
I said, “No – too soon. And besides, P’nina is leading one in February.”
And then P’nina asked about doing something on Saturday. And then Helen asked about Saturday. And Sheila wanted to go out on Saturday. And dammit, Helen mentioned White Queen because rumor had it there was now a track to the top.
So we went up White Queen. It was a totally different day. Instead of clear blue skies and sunshine, we were pretty much inside a cloud. But, as Sheila said, it was every bit as beautiful. Every snowshoe at Whitewater is a wonderment no matter the weather. It’s just a stunningly beautiful place.
So we had a fabulous day.
Next: Evening Ridge.
But before that, something closer to home: Pine Cone Inn and perhaps the ridge beyond.
How I love the feeling of a tired, well-worked body after being outside in such beauty all day.
Bonus: we also had fun.
