This was one of those very short Baker trips, 1/2 day or less because of strain, weakness, and pain in my right leg which really hindered snowshoeing. Three of us; Blair, Cameron, and myself made the trip. After snowshoeing together, I let my two companions go ahead and do some strolling ahead.
Thanks Blair for checking the lake Ann route in a bit; was too weak to head down there.
Although this is a belated report; it is interesting to note there was still a lot snow in the Baker area 2 weeks ago.
Here are the photos.
Drive in - huge snow banks layered....
Started up the trail, and went on to check the snow depth relative to the Interpretation Building, and the washroom facilities. Still very deep, and appears to have been some reduction in snow depth of a meter since my last visit which I thick was the maximum then.
There had been some fresh snow the previous night or day....
Took a walk over, to check out to see if we could make out the Lake Ann Trail.
Check out the new snow on these trees.
Here I am waiting for the sun to appear, and here it comes as we end the day early and return.
About 5 km return for the few hours spent.
