Snow Shoe - first of 2012

We had an amazing day of snow shoeing on the weekend !
The Vancouver Mountains have had minimal snow this season and we have only been on the mountain a handful of times.  As soon as we saw snow in the forecast we made a point to get up there and it was well worth it.

An early start, which turned out to be an excellent idea as the mountain was VERY busy as we were leaving. We strapped up our shoes and headed up Dam Mountain.  

At the top we met a pair of very friendly well fed Ravens, after a little chat and several pictures.  We didn’t feel we were ready to head down so we took a detour around Discovery Loop before heading down the mountain.
