We were nestled in the back country over the Easter break with a small cabin, hearty fireplace, and a balcony which offered a view of the world. On Saturday I took advantage of the warm sun and rented snow shoes for a rendezvous with nature.
“What trail is the best to do?”
“Trail? Just go out to the middle of the lake.”
“Well, is there a trail?”
“Yes. But you should just stay on the lake.”
“You need to avoid the avalanche run-off and the other trail is icy.”
“The lake is the perfect condition for snowshoeing and it’s beautiful. Keep it simple!”
I slid on my snow shoes and listened to the crackle of snow beneath my feet. It felt like the perfect morning as I wandered out to the middle of the lake admiring the spectacular views.
I was alone in the silence there was no chatter in my head, no noise coming from behind, just the sound of the birds in the trees as the warm sun began to beat down on my face. It was by keeping it simple, avoiding the ice, that I was able to enjoy such a peaceful experience. Sometimes the least resistance can be the best path to take on the unknown journey.
How do you keep it simple?
