Sunday we went to play in Lassen Park. The snow has most of the park covered but we were able to go on a guided snowshoe walk with a ranger at the visitor center. It was great fun and excellent exercise. The snowshoes were provided for a one dollar donation.
I found it rather easy because I have done so much cross country skiing before. The only problem I found was when I had done it and it was starting to get automatic without thinking my mind slipped into the cross country technique and I found myself tripping on the jagged points under the shoe that gripped the snow. I was trying to glide.
I did snowshoe one time many years ago. I was at a conference where a race was offered. I had never done it before and won the one mile race. I was shocked. 2261 days ago
