After we symbolically opened a new 2013. hiking season by walking on Capilano trail in West Vancouver last week…

… we decided to go to Lynn Headwaters Park today. A sky, after almost two months of raining, cleared up today. It was nice, sunny and cold.
Not as much snow as it should be in this part of a year, but enough to slow us down somewhat. We wanted to go to Norvan Falls – I was never there so it would be a good opportunity to put another dot on that map 😉 But we started hiking too late, and by the time we reached 5th kilometer – we needed two more to reach the falls – it was 2pm and we decided to return. A trail was not that hard but was icy and slippery and we didn't want to risk to return while the night falls. The information on info board said that sunset is around 4:30pm but sun goes fast behind mountains even earlier. Risking to end up with a broken leg, at the beginning of a year didn't sound like a good idea.
Anyway, we had a nice 10km hike on a sunny weather. Maybe soon we go somewhere with much more snow. We will see 😀
