What Ive been up to is snowshoeing in our beautiful state of colorado. Im learning the ins and outs of equipment and clothing to wear. After test driving a pair of borrowed snowshoes, I bought some from craigslist. I already had some hiking poles I could use. Now Im trying to get the layering thing figured out. Wind shell, vest , polarfleece, wool shirt. two pairs of gloves.
Last Weekend we had 5 carpools of 26 people meet at Rocky Mountain National Park. We drove to the Bear Lake Trail Head and took the Emerald Lake Hike. It was about 4 miles. We passed by 3 lakes and walked right over them. There was a photographer getting some close up frozen lake shots with his tripod. Afterwards, we headed over to Oskar Blues an artsy pub in Lyons.
It was a fun day.
I think the scenery in the park may be better in winter than in the summer. The snow and rocks on the mountains proved to be one photo opportunity after another.
