Snowshoed near Fraser River trail on January 1, 2020

Happy New Year! I went on a late afternoon hike with snowshoes along the Fraser River trail at the Rendezvous community to get outdoors and ring in the New Year.

The trails alliance does a nice job taking snowmobiles through the Fraser River trail and surrounding areas, including into the lower Rendezvous community, to groom and drag nordic tracks. Being up in the area for the first time this season, I took advantage and went on a little walk among the shrubs.

Even though it’s only yards from US-40 it’s down low in the river and marsh beds and perfectly quiet and serene. I never saw another person.

There’s parking right off Rendezvous Road, it’s worth checking out if you’re in the area.
