These Thursdays are turning into discovery days and I'm discovering lots about them, about me, about others. I think too that I am getting what these Thursdays are all about and I like what I am getting! Today was another one-way snowshoe along a route I did not know existed from William Watson Lodge to Pocaterra Hut the longer way with a detour. I feel like these one-ways are spoiling me, how will I manage when it comes time to do an out & back again.
I eyed that blanket of white and dreamed of dashing through that snow.
We reached a junction and there once again is a trail sign for the "High Rockies".
After crossing the dam we took the route for the Penstock Loop.
The warning sign says this tower may discharge without warning!
We continued along and eventually made our way to Pocaterra Hut.
We had a late lunch inside before carrying on with more snowshoeing.
Now we were three heading off in search of some powder.
It was time for a little route finding and bushwhacking up a steep slope and down the other side.
We reached a meadow and broke trail through it which lead us back to a X-C Ski trail.
We followed the last section along side the X-C Ski trail back to Pocaterra Hut completing a fun loop.
