The Snowshoe

We decided on Lower Gold Creek off the Hyak exit and wound up with a great day – no rain and with some very odd warm tropical gusts of wind! We had a small adventure.. when we arrived at a large pond.. a woman not in our group had sat down for lunch and when she tried to get back up somehow her skis wound up slipping out from under her and running out on to the middle of the pond. She was not interested in attempting anything to retrieve them but our intrepid campers suggested retrieving a canoe they had seen on the side of an empty chalet… we went back, the canoe was locked.. but did find a very long pole with a rake attached and a sled.. and with these the skis were retrieved!
