Hiker & Photographer Tim Penney reports: “Winter has definitely started in Strathcona Park. I did my first snowshoe trip of the 2011/2012 season yesterday and was able to walk almost the length of Battleship Lake on the ice, albeit along the very edge. Lake Helen Mackenzie is now iced over, but certainly not thick enough to walk on.
The SWI building looks nice in the virgin snow. Remember that it was completely buried last winter, so we have a long way to go to break that record.”
