Four Snow Angel Memorials Mark Sunny Day of Snowshoeing
We actually started the day with a quick trip up to take a look at Memorial Falls, a three-quarter mile, slightly uphill climb to see the frozen cascade with water still running behind the crystalized falls. This canyon holds usually holds inversions that chill us, and today was no exception. It also has an ice hazard from the spring that seeps from a large rock. There is no way to avoid the ice as it abuts the creek. But with careful foot placement, we picked our way without any slips this time.
Then we headed up the road less than a quarter mile to hike up Jefferson Creek. The sun was shining and the creek gorgeous with the snow covering parts of it, resembling fluffy floating marshmallows.
After about two miles of hiking, we turned around and headed to see Tony at Bob's bar for a late lunch before going back to Great Falls.
