Bow Hut

The storm from yesterday continued as periodic rain into the following day.  Many high peaks were shrouded in cloud, and dusted with new snow, so I decided to hike to the Bow Hut as an alternative to a summit.  It was a scenic walk through boulder gardens and charming forest, into a high cirque and an amazing view of the edge of the Wapta Icefield.
