Cascade Fire Road to Stoney Creek Cabin

Bill and his frosty beard

February  20th 2018

Great trip to Stoney Creek Wardens Cabin. Weather a little cold -22c at the parking lot. Not skied  more than twice this year so was expecting a long grueling day and I got one. Well worth it though I have long wanted to see where Dorothy Carlton of Banff had lived as a war bride from England in the late 1940’s. https://www.whyte.org/digitalvault/fireside-chat-with-dorothy-carleton .Great to meet Chuck on the trail and can now put a face to the name. We did not see the sheep he took pictures if on the mountain side.
