Today Ben, Peter and I headed out for an exploratory snowshoe. What lies across from Whitewater Canyon and Mount Brennan on the FSR officially known as Bear Face? Let’s find out.
The snow was surprisingly good so off we went. The Google Earth map had shown a long (very long) logging road. Happily, we could ignore it completely and head straight up over open glades and even more open forest.
We covered a lot of ground. The morning sunshine was crazy hot and we saw Ben strip right down to his skin (top part only thank goddess!).
We really had no idea of a destination. We just headed up for three hours and stopped for lunch with a glorious viewpoint. That said, we had nothing but views the entire time. Beautiful! And majestic.
At lunch, Peter decided to head straight down. Then after lunch Ben chose to explore farther and see what lay even higher up. So I headed back down on my own, which was rather lovely and peaceful and serene and all the things I like about going out on my own.
The best of both worlds – given our physical distancing was a good 20 feet anyway all morning.
And now, to celebrate Alisa’s emergence from self-islolation in the basement – pizza, beer and wine!
