Trip Photos – Blindman’s Bluff – 18 Dec 2013

The weather was clear and breezy for the impromptu walk to Blindman’s Bluff.  This short walk through open forest and rocky, mossy bluffs provided excellent views.  The lunch stop was brief due to the cool temperature.  Only 2.5 km.

Trip Photos – Nugedzi – 4 Dec 2013

We took advantage of the weather for an impromptu hike up to Nugedzi.  The plan was to go to the Overlook, but the group was keen for more, so we continued up to the Lakes for lunch and then on to the Discovery Passage Overlook.  There were lots of unusual ice crystals on the lakes and ponds.  The full tour with lunch was four hours.
