We were headed home from the Palisades Centre and decided a little adventure south on the Forestry Trunk from Hinton was in order. About ten kilometres south of Hinton the white stuff was starting to accumulate in the ditch, and by the time we got to the cap site two feet of the mixture was waiting in the ditch. Fortunately Striders Ride and VDD had set up a marker with flagging to indicate GZ, and a rock was placed dead over the cap. So after wading out into the ditch with the shovel in hand, the cap find was quick and easy - thanks guys!
There were hunters everywhere on the Forestry Trunk this morning and fortunately for a number of deer and elk, they were on a relatively inaccessible ridge about two kilometres west - check out the picture. Great spot, lots of the white stuff, and unfortunately no snowshoes to check out Cardinal Divide - oh well, we'll have to wait for spring. TFTH and fun, the pictures are on the way!
