Fawn Lake

Sunday, December 19, 2010
Leader: Matthew Bell
SShoe: 7 miles, 900 ft (Difficult)

This trip was rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday to avoid some nasty weather. Because, of the stormy week prior to this trip there was a lot of fresh powdery snow. As we set out from Crescent SnoPark it became apparent that it was going to be a lot of work to get to Fawn Lake. Even with snowshoes we sunk down about a foot and a half. It was quite literally walking in a winter wonderland.

On the way in we experienced a torrential snowbombing that left 2 of us drenched in snow and the others experiencing a whiteout.

We each took turns breaking trail to Fawn Lake as it is a lot of work plowing though that much snow. Along the way a group of cross-country skiing Obsidians caught up to our group. Together we made the final push to Fawn Lake. It took us 3.5 hours. We enjoyed lunch along the shore of Fawn Lake but due to the cloudy skies and falling snow our vistas didn't include the surrounding peaks.

We snowshoed back through our own trench in 1 hour and 40 minutes, just under twice as quickly.

Members: Matthew Bell, Daphne James, Danneille Harris, Suzanne Steussy, Lynda Christiansen.
