We met in the parking lot at Superstore, more than 5 said they were interested in joining us for the day but only one showed up. We weren't concerned, it takes two to tango. Some activities are better shared and we were just happy to share the experience together. We know that more people will join the club as time goes on.
Julie and I carpooled up to Waterton together and took the time to get to know each other. We've never met before and by the time we arrived to the park, we discovered a lot about each other.
Once we arrived,we strapped on our snowshoes and began to explore the Cameron Lake area. We both hadn't explored the area in the winter before, so we just began to walk on a beaten path. Pretty soon, we caught up to some other snowshoers and we followed them.
It didn't take us long before we reached the lake and the picturesque views. Here everyone stopped for lunch, a snack and the opportunity to take a photo. Above is a picture of my ruck sack on the lake.
Julie and I attempted to cross the lake, but our nerves got the better of us and we quickly turned around. There were two brave nordic skiers that ventured across. We weren't brave enough so we headed back.
The trail to Cameron Lake is an easy trail for beginners. It is formed on the road to the lake that is closed for the winter. The incline isn't too steep, and the snow was compact enough so the conditions were ideal to anyone who is just starting out in skiing or snowshoeing. Even if you don't have skis or snowshoes, the snow was compact enough that if you had good quality boots, you could hike the trail to enjoy the view.
