Hiking in NovemberA couple of days ago I did a hike from the crossroad up toward Mt Assiniboine. It was snowing and had already accummulated about 10 to 15 cm new snow. About half an hour into the hike I had to cross a creek over a bridge which was tree cut and laying over the creek with a steel cable strung across the creek to hold on to at about chest height. I've continued on and hiked up all the way to a lake.
