Last week was a white out. The snow was coming at us sideways as the wind whipped us, causing our heads to face downward in order to protect both skin and eyes. This evening was cold, but with a lack of wind and cloud, the expanse of Vancouver opened up before us. Harder packed snow made the running easier, but the hills were the same. Leading the advanced group tonight, we made it out to Thunderbird Ridge and had the whole of Greater Vancouver shining in front of us, 1000m below.
The snowshoe was pretty amazing tonight, reminding me how lucky I am to have the option of going to a mountain 20 minutes from my place.
