Maybe it was cabin fever that spurred us on, but despite not being properly geared for the snow, we decided to trek all the way to Heather Lake. This nearly 4.2 mile round trip probably would've been a lot faster and easier if the snow hadn't been knee deep.
But we had fun navigating and digging ourselves out of holes. This was probably a stupid thing to do considering one of us could've broken a leg... but we were pretty intent on getting to the lake. We passed very few people and at times, the trail got a bit eerie and hard to follow with the snow quickly covering up the trail and previous tracks.
After resting and consuming a few snacks, we headed back. We heard what we thought was a bear growling but fortunately didn't see any.
