High Mountain Peaks

When we are at our float cabin on Powell Lake in Coastal BC we are surrounded by high peaks.

Using snowshoes we are able to get to a viewpoint overlooking the lake with spectatular snowcapped mountains in the distance (Beartooth, Knuckleheads, Freda and Tin Hat).

Sometimes we use our quads to get to other high viewpoints. Here is one overlooking Haslam Lake with Texada Island in the background.

Our good friend John likes to build trails just to get to high places like this. Trail building is hard work, but the benefits are well worth it.

Have you been thinking about coming to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics? Take a few extra days and come visit Powell River. It will be the "high" point of your vacation. -- Margy
