On Saturday we did a snowshoe trip up to the Red Heather shelter in the Diamond Head area of Garibaldi Provincial Park.
We had two Scouts from the 5th West Van (plus a dad and younger sibling) and three Rovers from different PCC & FVC groups that we connected with on their excellent web forum: http://www.roversbc.com/forums/index.php
It was a real pleasure to hike with Andrew, Kim and Mark. Amazingly talented and impressive Rovers.
Once we arrived at the shelter we were immediately greeted by a contingent of Venturers from the 1st Coquitlam Scout group (the benefits of having readily identifiable head gear) that had arrived earlier in the afternoon. After we exchanged email addresses and got to know them (and woofed down some lunch), it was time to head back down the trail for home.
We’ll be back every weekend this month (except the weekend of our two night camp up at Joffre Lake).
If anyone wants to join us, just shout!
