Snowshoeing White Hills

We had yet another perfect weekend for snowshoeing.  We had 20 or 30 cm of fluffy fresh snow fall during the week and then ideal weekend weather for getting out and playing in it.  This time we hit the trails in the White Hills on the northeast edge of St. John's.  There is a fairly extensive network of roads, footpaths, bike trails and power line right-of-ways that criss-cross over the hills.  We spent a couple hours exploring and saw some great country.  When I reviewed our path afterwards I realized that aside from the road, we didn't actually follow any designated trails.  There is certainly more ground to explore in this direction on another trip.

We cut across country for a couple kilometres, but eventually met up with a road and took that back to the cars, which were parked at the federal fisheries complex.
