The fates, however, smiled upon us. We received three puny inches of snow over the last 24 hours, accompanied by a howling wind. Truthfully, one could probably wear a pair of docksiders and successfully walk on snow that shallow, but we really wanted to try out our snowshoes.
We went to the Erkki Harju ski trail and snowshoed for about 45 minutes. That was good enough for a first time out, especially considering the dropping temperature and the crazy winds (gusting up to 40 mph). I'm glad to say that we survived our first snowshoe outing, and I look forward to many more.
