Hiking the Joffre Lakes trail, Pemberton, B.C.
Our first snow of the season, it began to fall just one hour into our hike to Upper Joffre Lake on Saturday. Although overcast and cold, the experience was truly ethereal. Gracie kept a field journal for the trip ("feno journal") to make note of any animal sightings: one large eagle and several cheeky, food-stealing Whiskey Jacks. En route to the top we may have begun to teach her some Christmas carols... (because even though it's too early for snow, it's never too early for holiday songs!).
Working up an appetite prior to our Thanksgiving Day feast!
