Today’s non-snowshoe hike was considerably more successful than yesterday’s. Despite Simon’s serious doubts, we got to the Buchanan Access trailhead near Kaslo and began hiking with NO SNOW on the trail.
We went up and along and up and – well, the usual (up) for quite some time. We didn’t hit snow until we got to the little ponds in the trees place. The hollow and lack of sun had kept the consolidated snow here. We chose this place to turn back and then went up to the high point at the junction.
And then we went back down. It was a satisfying, good early shoulder season hike.
The puppies loved it although they both had a tad of trouble getting back up the stairs when we got home. Two days in a row – they’ll get a rest day tomorrow.
