Snowshoeing Photo Essay – Get Featured!

After my big adventure, I had to take Danny snowshoeing. Roxy raced ahead.

Danny followed my lead down to the Sally Barber Road.

Once we hit the mining trail, we cruised on the hard-packed snow.

We ran into a runner who suggested trekking to the mine or looping around by taking Nightmare on Bald Mountain Trail. We couldn’t find the trail, so we made our own tracks up old Baldy.

The slow and steady climb through heavy snow proved to be too much for Roxy.

We found the trail back home and Roxy sprinted ahead.

Our little outing took more than two hours, but the exercise while taking in Colorado’s beauty was worth every minute.

  3. All I know is that I have seen enough snow this winter!. Great pics but let’s see some sunny warm days!

    Roxy is saying “Take me to the beach”!

    • Happy Spring to you!
      We had a lot of fun. Roxy collects a lot of snow on her fur. I would have put on her deluxe doggy mittens, but would have lost then in the deep powder. :)
      How’s Cali?

  4. Wow, that’s a lot of snow Susie. But it’s so great to see that you’ve finally gotten a good dose of it. I was worried for a while. That looked like you both were having a great time. I love how Roxy gets around. The backpack idea was brilliant. Snowshoeing is something that I’ve never done, but should be on my bucket list. I have to clothes to do it in, just no snow or shoes. Sending you warm thoughts and hugs! :)

      It was a lot of fun. We’ve had the snowshoes for a while, but hadn’t used them. We’ve had a record year for snow in the mountains. I bet we’re getting close to 400 inches! Yep I just checked. Breck is at 385 inches for the year!
      You would love it. When I went hiking through the snow the first time, I didn’t wear them and broke through. Snowshoes keep you on top! :)

  5. How about Hey Buddy, can you spare a ride? Clichéd I know. Or how about me and my Doggy bag? Last one for the cliché pot. She ain’t heavy, she’s my woofer. On that not I’m outta here before I cause an avalanche of clichés. Be Well Susie.
