Checking the Silver Star webcam in the morning we discovered it was clear blue skies up there; at home in Vernon we were socked in. I guess a lot of people had the same idea because when we finally made it up the hill, just before noon, we were directed into the Lot E; a little west of the village centre. Beginning at Lot E, we hiked to Brewers Pond to buy our passes and got onto the BX Trail, followed that to Mountain View. We were heading to the cabin but we took a wrong turn and ended well below the cabin. We weren't the only ones ending up in the wrong place so we're determined to go back soon and see where we went wrong. Usually we take Grizzly Adams trail to the cabin but because our map indicated both trails go there we thought we'd try something new. So, instead of the at the cabin, we lunched at the side of the trail enjoying the sun and the view before returning via BX and then Chakra to the Silver Queen chair and back to Lot E. Along the way we met many more people on snowshoe, skis and fat bikes. No wildlife but corvids: magpies, ravens and crows.
