Snowshoe

Winter is still here so why not make the most of it. With almost a foot and a half of new snow, I strapped on some snowshoes and hit the Rocky Ridge Trail. It’s the most challenging of the local trails, especially when wearing snowshoes. BTW, the rock to the left is part of one huge boulder, likely dropped here by the last glacier to visit this area.

    I donยดt envy you your snow! I did in January and February but not anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰ But itยดs definitely a good idea to use it for practicing walking with your snowshoes – I canยดt even imagine how difficult it must be – I bet Jack Reacher doesnยดt do this a lot so youยดre ahead of him in this! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I don’t think Jack Reacher is really a snowshoe kind of guy. We really thought the snow was behind us and this was a bit of a surprise. I’m hoping for a snowy photo shoot tomorrow and am then hoping for it all to melt rather quickly. I hope all is well with you. Cheers!

    I have never snow shoes, but cross country skis have been something I have tried a couple of times. Chris, I love how glacial rocks have such character displayed in colors and depth. Of course, cross country skiing is more for straight and flat paths. So glad you were able to get out and see the beauty. . . then shared it with us!

        The glaciers were amazing and their receding created glacier grooves. Not sure if there are some confused people who deny glaciers like they say climate warming and dinosaurs didn’t exist. I like those sedimentary rocks with ancient footprints in them. Hope your week goes nicely!

    I tried to say I never “snow shoed” but not sure if I should have said I haven’t been on snow shoes(?) Anyway, editor of spelling changed my word to snow shoes which isn’t an action word at all. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Ha ha ha…some of my English classes would enjoy debating that one for a while. I think “never been on snow shoes” would work. I have seen it used as a verb.

        Oh, because language has all sorts of oddities to it. But your image sense of what sounds right and what sounds questionable seems to be working. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
