My snowshoeing buddies today included teammates from Snow Springs, Emily and Kristen! They hiked together while I dawdled and snapped. Mostly I feel peaceful when hiking alone, but I did wonder, for just a second, if a mountain lion was spying on me, deciding I was the slow and sickly one that got separated from the herd. We saw deer and met a fit fellow named Gary who had been snowshoeing some miles on top of his seven mile run this morning. Gary keeps a motion sensor camera "up there, somewhere" and has photos of elk, coyote, cougar, and bear.
Water soothes after a long day with the children.
K and I call these "Cinnamon Rolls." We always feel lucky when we see them "in action." Four together is a whole bakery!
Hiked into the backwards sunset, if that makes sense...
I love red.
It's refreshing out there!
Winter sunsets are always great when celebrated on snowshoes!
