Those of you who have been following my blog for a while might remember me mentioning something about snowshoeing back in…wow…2009. It’s kind of hard to believe it’s been that long. But, it has. Over the past few years, there hasn’t been enough snow in my portion of Maine to make snowshoeing worth while (it’s actually difficult to snowshoe when there isn’t enough snow). But recently, there was quite a bit of snow on the trails I tend to frequent. And finally, I got to use my snowshoes for the third time since I bought them back in ‘08!
I went to one of my trusted standby trails, the Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge. It’s a four mile round trip trail (and surprisingly I’m not in agony from the trek like I was the first time I ever tried my snowshoes on that trail). It was nice and sunny when I started out, but not even a quarter of the way into the trail, it started snowing like a son of a *insert expletive here*…. But, I trudged on hoping the flurried wouldn’t turn into a squall (Eskimos aren‘t the only ones with several words for snow!).
Like usual, I had my camera with me and took some shots along my trek. Here’s one of the better shots for everyone to enjoy.
Until next time…
