First Snow Shoe in Years

Winter in the Sierra Mtns

We finally were able to snow shoe on the day after Christmas.  Because of the drought its been several years now, and the snow was amazing.  About a six or seven-foot base.  Plus the added benefit of being able to bring Jamie and Angela along.  Weather was in the low 20’s but we quickly warmed up with the exercise.  We go to our normal spot just near Royal Gorge at Serene Lakes.  The hike was just under three miles.   Check out the photos.

  1. Hi Geoff
    Awesome photos, I can’t remember ever seeing so much beautiful fresh snow. Walking with your snow shoes looks like a lot of exercise & physical exertion for people your age. You & Kate have a terrific New Years Eve celebration for 2015. Thanks for all of the great trip travelogues & photos from throughout 2015. I look forward to all of your trips during the upcoming new year 2016. Happy New Year Geoff.
