After almost 2 feet of snow, woke up to a sunny Saturday and thought – where can Ro & I hike that doesn’t involve driving to a trailhead?

Waneka Lake in Lafayette is only a mile from my home so this local park worked perfectly in our plans.  Iced over and winter home to flocks of Canadian geese and wood ducks, hard to imagine folks paddle-boating here after Memorial Day.

Because of our heavy snow, the walk to Waneka itself provided part of the fun for this day hike.  Did I mention – my dog LOVES snow.  Burying his head deep in the snow or racing in circles at break-neck speed were prime for this day.  Since the lake was frozen, we dropped off the path and snowshoed an area which is usually water – our only competition this day were cross-country skiers and sledders.

Beautiful sunshine, beautiful snow, beautiful day.
