A Weekend of Iceshoeing… Oh Wait, Snowshoeing

Went snowshoeing a couple of weekends ago, and although it hadn’t snowed in ages and the physical activity probably should have been deemed “iceshoeing,” it was a great adventure all the same.

An excerpt from my trip dispatch over at Wend:

snowshoe21Packs filled with apples and granola bars (because we left in too much of a hurry to actually plan a real lunch), we set out on a section of the Pacific Crest Trail, headed for Trillium Lake. To say the snow was well packed would be an understatement. “Having fun on the ice today?” I remarked when we passed a group of cross country skiiers.

“Yeah, you’re probably having a much easier time,” replied one of them, pointing to my snowshoes.

“True, although I think it would be easier just to walk.”

But if you’ve come to snowshoe, you’re going to snowshoe dammit! No matter how much easier taking them off might be…

Read the whole thing here along with a great slideshow of pics.
