Breaking out my snowshoe trail
Trip Report/Photos from BillyB1976
Another day close to home. I decided to break out my local snowshoe trail again.
Not sure if this would be fun for some people, but it is for me. But, I could find something fun to do at the dump... umm, I mean the "landfill".... LOL I could have a blast at the tire pile. And, when they burn the debris pile, I could bring marshmallows and hotdogs. LOL
This time, the snowshoe hike was harder, as the snow is deeper than the trip before.
In a few spots I could walk on top of the snow, but for the most part I sunk in.
The last time I was out on my trail there were all kinds of animal tracks, but this time hardly anything. They must all be hunkered down somewhere.
I was out for 2 hours working on this. Made 3 passes. I had to come back to the house to get my bandana as the sweat from my forehead was killing my eyes. I need to keep the bandana with me on all hikes, year round, I guess.
At the start, the temp. was in the low single digits, but warmed to the low double digits. Very little wind, just a slight breeze from time to time.
I have no way to measure my distance. Unlike the Six Million Dollar Man, I "Don't Have the Technology". LOL Maybe someday I'll get a GPS or smart phone with a GPS app, but for now my simple flip phone works for me. A good guess is 0.6 miles for the trail, end to end.
After the snowshoe hike, I came back home and hung out "in" the snow bank for a minute. LOL
