Young Birch in winter, Camp Barrachois

Another trip to Cape Breton to stay at a friend’s cottage, another trip to the old Camp Barrachois to check out the abandoned summer camp. This was the first time I had been to explore it in the winter — there are a few photo of it in the summer here and here — and it was just as interesting covered in snow. I needed snowshoes to get around the property as it has snowed quite often on Cape Breton this winter and the undisturbed property had plenty of the white stuff, too much for boots alone.

I called up the park to see what was still available for backcountry campsites and found the place almost completely booked up. No surprise there. I managed to get site 39 at Poison Ivy Falls for Saturday night and — score! — the yurt at site 28 for Sunday night. This was going to be good.
