Snowshoeing Strathcona Park

I’ve wanted to try snowshoeing for a while now, and so a last minute trip up to Mount Washington in Strathcona Provincial Park afforded the opportunity.  I got the rest of the family settled into their respective activities and set off to the Nordic Centre to pick up my gear.  On the suggestion of the very kind staff, I set off from Raven Lodge to combine Old Cabin Loop train along with Crooked Creek Trail.

I was surprised by how easy it was to get used to the snowshoes, but it was pretty simple and I was moving along at a good pace, stopping along the way to take photos.

It was gently snowing making for a enchanting scene and I will definitely go again as soon as I can.

Here’s  some of my favourite photos of the outing:
