Snow Shoe in the Dark

Our group had dinner at a great place on top of the slopes. We gave the attendees the option to Snow Shoe back down after dinner. Being the adventurous Event Planner I opted to go with the group. IT WAS A BLAST!!

I was afraid it would be too dark, but once we got going with our headlamps darkness was not an issue. I think I am getting the hang of this altitude stuff and I was finally not gasping for breath. The group was mostly older folks and an 8 year old, so we took it at a medium pace. I tromped through the snow, making holes and at one point I fell on my bum. I figure that took the embarrassment away from anyone who fell after me...so it was totally planned :)

If you have never been snow shoeing I totally recommend it. A great workout and a fun way to play in the white stuff.

The best picture I could get. Hope you all are having a GREAT WEEKEND! I get to go home today, a couple days early, YIPPEE!! I will be back tomorrow to review how I did on my goals and to show you more photos of running in Colorado!

Snow shoeing is a blast! Never done it in the dark though. Safe travels and enjoy being home early.

sounds like you had a great time and that is great news that you get to go home a little early. I am sure you miss your studs.

Snow shoeing is great fun. We just purchased snow shoes a couple of months ago. We enjoy taking the dog out with us.

Save travels.
