Me, J Her
did partial hike
8 km round trip
10:30am - 1:00pm
Cool, snow packed, sunny, below 0
Very first wintry hike. It was beautiful. We stopped for lunch at a picnic table, cleared some snow off it. After we ate, we hiked back. Met quite a few people heading in, but only one guy was ahead of us heading out on our hike.
Looking back: We cut this hike short because the sounds of gun shots scared us. We did not want to run into hunters or god forbid be hit by bullets. We did not know back then that the hunters would have been on the other side of 40 and the gun shot sounds were ricocheting throughout the mountains.
