Today was a fine winter day so I went out to explore a snowy white Red Cliff:

We had a bit of fresh snow last night and Cobbler Path is usually one of the first and last places you can see snow on the trail; of course this time of year a lack of snow is not really a concern.

As you can see in the picture above, even the unpaved section of Red Cliff Road was pretty today, this closed off last kilometre of Red Cliff Road is not a part of the official trail, but you need to hike it in order to reach the Cobbler Path trailhead on Red Cliff.

You’ll find this trail sign halfway towards the official Red Cliff trailhead, but instead of going there, today I took the left route towards Outer Cove. Just before the trail descends Red Cliff there are a few impressive viewpoints; in summer this is a great spot for whale watching but in winter it’s not too shabby either:

With plenty more snow on the way this month, I think I’ll come back here a couple of times. The view is pretty spectacular. 🙂
