North of Bouleau Lake, west of Westside Road.
I was pouting because I had no easily achievable coordinates for Geohashing Day. Late in the day I decided it would be better to go as far as I could.
I had been in the area back when I was new to geohashing. I got really close but decided to let nature win. I would totally be up for a rematch now, except being May instead of August I was sure it would be locked in with snow. If I hadn't slept in I could of attempted a long snowshoe.
When I had been on this road three years ago, I remember thinking how rough and treacherous it was. Either they upgraded the road (unlikely) or all this geohashing had altered my perception of what was a good road.
As I gained altitude, I began driving through patches of snow, but at around 1200m it changed completely. There was only one set of tire tracks, and amusingly, they went a few meters meters ahead before reversing. I didn't have snow tires or chains, so I enjoyed some of the brisk air, then headed back.
Once back to civilization I did a little sightseeing and took a few shots. Overall, much better than staying at home. I believe that's the point of all of this.
