Today I went on an adventure with my husband and our friend Mark. Let me start with the fact that these two are crazy when put together – they do things like the Death Ride, climb mountains, etc. Sometimes I tag along and sometimes I can’t hang. Today’s adventure was to go snowshoeing. Mike and Mark have been doing it for years, but I decided to borrow a friends (thanks Kassie!) and give it a try. It was seriously fun. We ended up hiking almost six miles in right around two and a half hours… having a blast the whole time.
We haven’t had a very good winter this year, so the snow was not as fresh as we would have liked it, but this really was a blast. And, it was great exercise!
We hiked in a little along a road that runs between our neck of the woods and Placerville (it’s closed in the winter because they don’t clear the snow). We then detoured off into the fresh, untouched snow. It was so beautiful… every now and then we would stop and there was nothing but silence or the wind in the trees. The weather was absolutely beautiful – we almost didn’t need gloves (and at the hardest parts I thought about taking off my top layer). The wind picked up a little at the end, but it wasn’t too bad. It was a beautiful day!
