Lake O'Hara Ski
Dan Millar, Kelly Wood and I skied into Lake O'Hara in Yoho National Park on 16 February 2002.  This was my second ski trip into the area, and on both occasions, the weather and snow conditions were outstanding.  We had no difficulties on the way in and enjoyed a well-deserved lunch break on the 'docks' near Lake O'Hara Lodge.  After lunch, we circumnavigated the lake before taking the fast and exciting downhill run back to the trailhead.
Winter is not so bad after all.
The morning sunlight accentuates the frost on the trees.
A cure for troubled souls.
Yukness Mountain (at right) towers over Lake O'Hara.
Couldn't have picked a better day to be here.
