Snow Shoe Adventures in Big Bear!

February 12th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Last weekend, I had the privilege of snow shoeing for only the second time in my life.   The first time was six years ago on a groomed trail at Rim Nordic with Benjamin strapped to me in a baby carrier!

I’m incredibly thankful and lucky to have such amazingly fit friends, because for this snow shoe experience, we got to leave the kids at home with Daddy. The girls and I got out for a 1.5 hour snow shoe adventure.  And, because it was my friends’ home town, she took us on a “trail” that had no tracks.  Essentially, we went straight up the mountain!

Is that not the most beautiful scene you’ve ever seen? No tracks, no trails, simply 5 feet of fresh powder.

The hike up included our three dogs!

Lots of calorie burning here, but, SO FUN.

This was one of those experiences (at least for me) that you just want to say “YAHOOOOOOOO” all the way down!
