After crossing a ridge we dropped down into a winter wonderland of deep snow with more snow coming heavily from the sky. We reached the snow covered lake which blended in with the rest of the white scenery. We took a break and then headed back. Our leader decided to try a different route back via Source Lake which was a mistake. Many fingers of streams led from the Lake creating watery obstacles between us and our way back. It made for a frustrating maze of deep snow that was cut through by the streams. We had to do various stream crossings and one significant stream leap. Unfortunately, we ran out film and were unable to capture some of the more interesting crossings. You will just have to talk with Jamie and hear the choice words she has for the experience.
Me and Snow Lake (seriously, it is behind me)
Snow Lake (appropriately named don't you think)
