Write Up:
This is a great route for a sunny winter day. From the parking lot at Elbow Falls to the trailhead, the Westerly wind was brisk, but it disappeared as soon as we were in the trees. The sunshine stayed with us, pushing the temperature up to 5 degrees C by early afternoon and making the numerous snow-covered meadows a real treat. A half dozen gray jays graced us with their presence during lunch on the Prairie Creek side, hoping to catch a few fallen crumbs. No snowshoes or spikes were needed until that last 3 Km along Prairie Creek, where there is a lot of ice and the snow on downslopes was slushy. We were back at the parking lot at 2:20 PM.
