Today I did my first ever snowshoeing little expedition into the mountains. It was awesome. We hiked from the Bear Lake trailhead to the Emerald Lake and took many little detours from the main trail. This is where the snowshoeing awesomeness comes all the way through, just step away from the trail and make your own or follow someone else’s little pass. We didn’t really know what to expect and how to do it all, just got the snowshoes, put layers of clothes, packed some food and went for it. The first time was really cool experience and we are going to explorer many more trails over the next few months, here in the Colorado winter.
btw, I had my little wrist health tracking band enabled with GPS and here it the map of the hike we did. You might wonder about us walking across the Dream Lake, it is frozen solid by now… so no worries..
