Heather Lake Snowshoe

Heather Lake is the next valley over from Lake Twentytwo. The hike up is very similar: a bit over 1000ft elevation gain over two miles.

However, the conditions were vastly different this time. Perhaps two feet of perfect, powdery, and recent snowfall covered every surface, and it was well below freezing, so the snow adhered to every surface (instead of slumping off the trees). It was overcast and actively snowing, so the blue skies and sharp shadows were replaced with softer light, and complete silence.
