Now that we have had more than plenty of snow (what was I asking for) and finished up all the shovelling and other outdoor work, it was time to break out the snowshoes again and play. Whew! It really is quite the workout, especially breaking track in the snow. I thought that I was in good shape, but I was breathing heavier than I do when I hike (with backpack and poles). Why didn't I buy myself a pair of snowshoes last year? I love this!
These will come in handy when I head out geocaching. Last winter when caching, I kept sinking in the snow and having to trek my way back with snowcovered jeans. Now, I have the proper gear - hiking pants with long silk underwear, and layers. That's the way to gear up.
