Sky Watch Friday

Skywatch Friday



This is one of my favorite times of the year. We are getting less snow falling and longer, brighter days. It makes for wonderful days of snowshoeing and cross country skiing. These pictures were taken on Wednesday at Blow-me-Down Cross Country Ski Trails. The sky was intensely blue and practially cloudless.




This is the "Gazebo". Its actually an a-frame cabin in the woods. You have a 5 kilometer ski to get there. There is a wood stove inside and visitors are allowed to make a fire to boil the kettle, or just to warm up. I was the only one there on this visit so I opted to sit outside on a bench and enjoy the view.




Here is part of the view as seen through the railing on the deck.



Please Visit Skywatch Friday.

We have several cabins in the back country for winter enthusiasts. They were built by volunteers and are user maintained. In the summer you can reach them by quad, but in the winter by ski or snowshoe only. I invite you to come see my March snow shots from Powell Lake, BC. - Margy
