March 18 - Last Days of Winter

2018 has been a fantastic winter for skiing at Silver Star Mountain. At the beginning of this month the snow base was measured at 279 cm., breaking a record that was set in 1950. Here are a few images from the mountain which show the beauty of this winter's snowfall.

These two images I made in Kalamalka Provincial Park on a hike on a trail to Rattlesnake Point, which overlooks Kalamalka Lake. This park is just across the street from the home where we are staying. 10-C_18_012810-C_18_0128 11-C_18_012611-C_18_0126

These two views of Kalamalka Lake are on the opposite side of the lake from our place.
