Laurier, Marshall, Tracy, set off for Rawson Lake, making it partway on our snowshoes.
We crossed directly from Upper Lake parking lot to Sarrail Creek falls, making use of our snowshoes across the frozen lake.
We made it about 3/4 of the way up the trail to Rawson before deciding to turn back.
On our way back across Upper Kananaskis Lake, we detoured to check out the peninsula and ice fishing camps.
