Staff Snowshoeing Adventure
Published By Todd Lucier on February 19th, 2006 in Edge Insider
The snow is deep as this month has seen above average winter precipitation fall in the northwest corner of Algonquin Park. The amount of precipitation that fell on Thursday was the highest one day total in over 60 years! So it is no surprise that staff decided to head out for a snowshoeing adventure.
Setting out across Kawawawaymog Lake we marched out past the islands and travelled south into the bay where we picked up the Hardwood Heaven trail and snowshoed to One-A-Day Lake.
As the sun shone brightly, we stopped to enjoy the bright blue sky, the white snow and the black shadows of maples while we enjoyed warm drinks and figs.
Taking the Valley-o, as Greg refers to it, showcased the Hemlock Ridge from Below before we climbed back up to the road and headed to the Kilnhouse for a Hot Stove session recounting the days adventures.
Today, the gang is off on skis heading across the lake perhaps to Wet or Blue Lake. Pictures coming soon.
This week Sir Sanford Fleming College visits, then it’s a weekend retreat with Martha as winter rolls on.
