Snowshoeing in National Park with Pictures

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

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.

The snow was peaceful and beautiful.

    Looks lovely! I've snowshoed a handful of times - but it's been a few years. The scenery looks beautiful.

    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.
