My sister, Sarah, got Jill and I some snowshoes for Christmas. We both were thrilled to have gotten such a cool gift, but every time we tried to go snowshoeing our efforts were thwarted. Several times we found too little snow, and a couple other times it was just too damn cold.
But today under 50 deg temps and a blue sky you had to see to believe, we did some snowshoeing up near Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. I am continually amazed at the incredibly gorgeous panoramic views presented in RMNP, regardless of how many times I've been there.
So from today here is a pic of Jill standing in front of Hallet Peak showing her snowshoeing best. The other pic is from the Morraine Lake area looking back towards Hallet and Flattop.
