Like it or not, winter is here. I like it because there are NO bugs. I hate bugs. These pics are from my first snowshoeing attempt ever. I’m not a fan of snowshoes, but if they get me into the hills, I’ll wear the dumb things. They have a mind of their own. Read that, I’m a noobie and it shows.
It was a perfect day for it. Cold and clear. This is a very popular spot that used to be a ski hill. We stopped for a snack and started to feel the chill. So back down the hill we go.
Nice overhang. There is about 7 feet of snow up here. My snowshoes were too small, so I sank in a lot. My companion had an older pair of wooden shoes with evil bindings. I started out with them, but the ‘bindings’ (loosings is more accurate) soon defeated me so we traded. What is neat is that 1/2 an hour away there is no snow at all. My kind of winter.
