I paddled Ship creek a lot in the summers. I also often skied up it to the dam in the winter. In a rush to get started on the winter season, I talked Gail into skiing up the creek with me. There was not enough snow to cover the brush. Nor had it been cold enough for ice to form over the creek to allow safe crossing back and forth across it. I didn't take any pics until we had turned around and were headed out. It did turn into a bit of a bushwhack. I thought it was an OK ski. But, I couldn't get Gail to go back up there again after that. No sense of adventure, I guess.
