As some know I am an advocate of the winter sport known as “Snowshoeing”. Because of the proximity of my home to many places when snowshoeing takes place it makes sense to write about them. For example, Rocky Mountain National Park; more specifically, a location called “Bear Lake”.
The day I went snowshoeing a weather system had delivered more than six inches of fresh snow, and at high altitude it is a workout without equal. Climbing about one thousand feet in elevation over two miles, and crossing the frozen Dream Lake was a wonder and delight. Along the way, which involved breaking trail, there was opportunity to encounter and marvel at wind-sculpted drifts.
Simply: GET YOUR SNOWSHOEING ON!
