Sherbrooke Lake
Yoho National Park, B.C.
January 2, 2001

The Hostel Outdoor Group kicked off the New Year with a snowshoe trip to Sherbrooke Lake. We parked at the motel on Kicking Horse Pass and took the trail to the south end of Sherbrooke Lake. After following the west shore for a ways, we crossed the lake and continued up the east shore to the north end of the lake. A couple hundred metres past the lake we settled down for a pleasant lunch next to a fire before retracing our steps.
