It was a damned cold December day to be out looking for foto opps for sure. I tried to get up to the back side of Mt. Arrowsmith but got stopped at the bridge by the Copp Creek Main. The bridge was covered in frozen snow and ice with two deep ruts worn in it and I just wasn't sure I could get over it with damaging the bottom of the Jimmy. So I turned back and headed to frozen Loon Lake on the Hump and then made my way back down to French Creek. The wind was so cold at French Creek that I ended up making a run to the Canadian Tire in Parksville for warmer gloves and head gear!
