adventure ho!

January 16, 2020

Check another thing off the bucket list:  I’ve been snowshoeing. Twice, even.

I should have done this ages ago, because I really like it. Hiking, in snow. Generally, I don’t like the cold, but the snowy world is so beautiful and engaging it’s totally worth the extra prep and attention. Rocky Mountain National Park, one of my favorite places, is different in winter:

Bonus:  The first trip up was right after I finished watching The Terror, which added a certain zing to the adventure. This is up at Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park. This picture is me actually on the lake, which is very frozen right now. How cool is that?

Seriously, I look like I’m about to dive into a James Bond adventure.

    Have you tried cross-country skiing in the mountains? If so, which do you prefer?

    I went cross-country skiing a long time ago, and I think I like snowshoeing better — it’s more intuitive, since it’s basically walking, and not as much of a strain as skiing.

    Rocky Mountain National Park is one of my favorites to visit. But only in summer so far, so walking around Bear Lake and up to Lake Haiyaha are all I’ve managed.
