christine and i were determined to do some snowshoeing today, so we got in the car and headed north. conditions in hockley seemed rather slim, so we kept going. once we got past 89, it started to look a bit more promising. when we finally pulled into the parking lot of mansfield, we knew we'd hit pay dirt ! AND, when we met up with richard and barb just finishing a ski, we knew we had it made . . .
we quickly donned the shoes and made our way out onto 6" of fresh pow! it was beautiful and i belted out a loud 'whoop' as i let the dions carry me across the snow.
awesome pic of christine looking out over the ridge . . .
we messed around for over an hour and couldn't stop commenting on how amazing it was to be out. at one point, we came across a guy wearing full camou gear and toting a cross-bow. he replied, 'no' when christine asked if he'd had any luck. we then decided that the deer had the last laugh, as we spotted, not 1, but 3 of them, following his tracks a little deeper into the forest! hahaha! and of course, we just HAD to take a pic of us by this sign . . .
what a day !
'life is good'
