13 Snowshoers trek through Hibou last Sunday

A gold medal day for the snow shoeing trek through the Hibou Conservation Area this past Sunday.

Well, perhaps not Olympic level in the afternoon event sponsored by Friends of Hibou in the wooded trails on the east side of the Harbor just north of Owen Sound. But great spirits and fun for the intrepid 13 who reveled in the brilliant sun but froze a little in the sharp northerly winds.

Chris Hachey lead us from the parking lot at the pumping station into the west side of the park, around the circular trail with side trips onto the beach and shore ice. Lots of birds in sight, especially around the feeders.  We did make a short side trip up the east side trail.

All 13 who started finished together. Many thanks to Chris for his leadership – and  home made cookies
