Breaking Trail Not Too Bad on a Snowy Day
It was Carolyn's first time out, as she got to try her brand new snowshoes and backpack. And she did well on this moderately easy three-mile hike. One challenge was the branches and rocks that weren't quite covered all of the way with snow yet. We got tangled up in slicks and small tree trunks a time or two. After a quick snack in the warming hut, we headed back to the cars for lunch at Bob's Bar in Neihart, which included sweet potato fries, of course.
On trail we saw plenty of elk and bunny tracks along with some cat tracks, but we didn't see any animals.
It was a gray day, turning to snow in the afternoon with a slight breeze; we were glad to make it home an hour ahead of our predicted 4 p.m. end time.
