It was a beautiful day for Abby and I to head up the Davis Creek trail and over to the big cedars.
Well! Exactly one year ago today, I organized the same hike for the KMC club. We had a lovely hike all the way to Fishhook Lake – no snow left on the trail.
Today – huge amounts of snow. I went in up to my knees a few times. The going got a bit slow near the cedars – and tentative as I crossed the swamp. Abby and I wandered around the cedars for about 30 minutes and absolutely did not find the grove. It seemed to be inaccessible – swamp water and all that.
Still, we wandered, at times precariously, among gorgeous trees and eventually made our way back to the lookout point for a lovely lunch, basking in the sun.
Needless to say, this was Abby’s favourite part of the day – yes, she did get half my sandwich.
Lovely drive home – a quick watering of the garden – and now that lovely feeling of being physically tired.
