On the trail to Assiniboine

We had a fantastic trip to Assiniboine. We went just after Christmas and spent a total of 6 days out there. The conditions for cross country skiing were superb – a deep base with 10 cm of powder on top. Pulling 30 lbs of firewood (all found!) over Assiniboine Pass is something that we’ll have to laugh about for years to come. Otherwise it’s just a swirl of good memories of cooking food in the Wonder Creek Shelter, touring in the sunny meadows, and laughing with some new acquaintances at the lodge.
