The weather broke here, for a minute, and instead of highs in the 10s we had a high of 40 degrees on Friday. We grabbed our opportunity to go try out snowshoeing. A local town has arranged a yurt in a canyon park to rent snowshoes, and there are several miles of groomed trails to try out. This was my first experience with snowshoeing. Aside from re-doing Max’s straps every 5 minutes, it was great fun, and so WONDERFUL to be outside in clear air after several weeks stuck indoors.
Snowshoeing is hot work. My one word of advice (since I am truly not an expert!) is don’t dress too warmly! The kids took breaks laying in the snow to cool off.
We were the only people enjoying this park in the middle of Friday afternoon (yay, homeschool!) So the quiet was wonderful, and although we didn’t see any animals or birds, really, it was just great too be listening to the quiet.
Howdy to everyone, and hope you’re enjoying your winter.
