Last Winter, we got so little snow that hiking up Ha Ling Peak in February wasn’t a problem. This year has been a little different, it was obvious from the start that there was still a lot of snow, with fresh skin tracks heading up beside the trail.
Still, with a nice packed trail, hiking in the snow was pretty easy. Until we hit the treeline.
Then our nice packed trail dispersed into a myriad of snowshoe trails. We did some tentative exploration on one of them. Brendan post-holed a lot. So did I.
This was the view from one of my holes.
Meanwhile Finn just hung out in the Ergo with his sunnies on.
So, conclusion? Bring your snowshoes if you want to get to the summit. Or maybe wait another month.
