watched the ice climbing

Volunteers that had not brought their own snowshoes, then selected a pair and we made our way to the trailhead of the Nisqually Vista Trail for the rest of the walk.

The snow was pretty thin (Nike Air Max Classic BW Womens only a couple feet so far) – I know it seems like a lot, but when the meadows have to have a minimum of five feet of snow for sledding to protect the fragile wildflowers; but it was snowing and absolutely breathtaking. There’s never a bad day when out Nike Air Max 90 Womens snowshoeing.Mt. Rainier is a great place for winter snowshoeing trips and I can’t wait to go back and volunteer over the winter. So come say “hi” on a ranger led walk and enjoy the spectacular beauty that surrounds you when you are up at Paradise. It’s a completely different place in the winter!We woke up this morning to 6 inches of light fresh powder. Living at 9000 feet high in the Colorado Rockies this is certainly not unusual, but it is always inviting, especially on a weekend day. My wife Sherry and I decided to grab our Tubbs and head out to enjoy. We ate a hearty breakfast, donned our snowshoe clothes (layers of course) and tossed our snowshoes and poles into the car. The temperature was a balmy 22 degrees as we left the house. A short 5 minute drive took us to the trailhead for the Ten Mile Canyon Trail. On with the shoes and Nike Roshe Run Dames away we went for a 6 mile jaunt. If you have ever snowshoe’d in fresh dry powder snow you know how great those conditions are, and we looked forward to a couple of hours of fun before heading home. As we climbed the canyon we passed only two other people, a Nike Air Max 2015 Herren father and son headed up to do a little ice climbing on the side of the canyon where one of the year round streams cascades down the steep rocky walls. We continued up the trail alongside Ten Mile Creek, flowing in and out of snow covered boulders with fantastic ice formations scattered along the trail. As we neared the top Nike Air Max 90 Womens Blackof the trail, near Copper Mountain Ski Resort, we played a bit on some rock formations, and I worked on my “flying skills” coming off the rocks. With fresh powder, landing on snowshoes feels like you are on the moon. We watched beavers in the shallow Adidas NMD Damen portions of the creek that remained unfrozen due to fast currents. We watched the ice climbing father and son high above us on the cliffs. We took turns breaking trail, choosing to make our own tracks rather than follow those of others who had come before us.  As expected our jaunt lasted about two hours during which time the sun shown, the clouds closed in, it snow so hard we couldn’t see, and then again the sun shown. A perfect way to spend a morning and start a weekend. Might be a good way to end a weekend tomorrow if we get the foot they are predicting tonight. It’s going to be a very white Christmas here in the high Rockies of Colorado… Forum Index -> Questions about ITT mechanics
