Default Mike Lake Ramble

Mayhem, Tucker and myself did a loop around Mike Lake in Golden Ears Park today. This is another step in my recovery from a ruptured achilles tendon..... Today was the first day the swelling in my foot has subsided to the point that I could get a hiking boot on for the first time in months. Life's little victories eh?

Anyway, we had a great time with some fresh snow falling. There are a couple small trees down on the trail, but if I can get up and over them anybody can. Here's a few photos from a relaxing stomp in the snow..... Hopefully in a couple weeks I can progress to Buntzen Lake or Minnekhada or the like.

Good to see the gate to the park is open. We hiked in a week ago from UBC forest. When we were there the entire lake had a slushy ice covering...no water was visible. Doesn't take long to melt out when the temps go up.
Glad you are slowly getting back out into nature.

Glad to hear the boot is fitting, Todd.
Gee, I thought Tucker would have been tuckered out from yesterday
