Up the Winter Trail

Powell River is a wonderful place to be any time of year. When snow comes down, we spend most of our time up the lake at our cabin cozied up to our woodstove. All of the wood gathering and spitting during summer and fall really pays off.

This is a picture of "The Notch" on Goat Island. We can see it from the front porch of our cabin. In winter, it remains in perpetual shadow from top to bottom. You can go on a hike "Up the Notch" with Wayne in Up the Winter Trail now available by clicking here.

One of our favorite winter activities is quad riding to snow in the back country. From there, snowshoes allow us to explore quiet and pristine snow covered trails.

On many such trips we travel with our friend John and his dog Bro.

Include Powell River in your winter vacation plans so you too can enjoy our beautiful land.

Discover some other winter adventures in Wayne's Coastal BC Stories book Up the Winter Trail. It includes adventures by quad, hiking, snowshoeing, and of course, stories about float cabin living. -- Margy
