|Message left for us where we parked the cars|
Last Sunday, I went on the Rambler's snowshoe trip to the Grand Canyon of the Fraser. It was a cold -25 c the day before, so the first thing that I did when I got out of bed that morning was check the temperature. If it was -20 or colder, I would have cancelled my ride to the meeting place and went back to bed! As luck would have it, it was -18, so I decided to do the trip. And I was sure glad that I did.
Despite the cold weather the day before, we had a decent turnout. When we drove out the place to park, there was another vehicle with a note on it for us. It was another group of Ramblers that would meet up with us! They were supposed to meet us at the lunch spot with a roaring fire, but as one of the member's leg fell through the ice into the cold river, they were delayed going in. They started one hour before us.
