It was a great time. Very knowledgeable guide. The weather was great and helped to make the trip even better.
Nothing exciting to see, good snowshoeing trail

Rob, our tour guide was excellent and he made the trip fun. However the paint pots are completely covered by snow and there was nothing special to look at. If you are mainly interested in going snowshoeing then this is a great tour. If you want to see something interesting then skip this
Great afternoon out
