Dispatch Boulder - Snowshoeing!

On Saturday, my friend Nancy and I went snowshoeing.  Neither of us had ever done so before.  We had a BLAST!

Here we are showing off our gear.  Not sure why we felt it important to capture the full head to toe snowshoe get-up, but we did.

Caribou Ranch Open Space was are destination for this fun day, and boy did it not disappoint.  Plenty of soft beautiful snow, blue skies and little to no wind.  Awesome!

Yes, this little pine tree is dead, but isn't it stunning in death.  This picture doesn't tell the real story of how vibrant it was, a startling spot of bright color in a sea of white.   

Snowshoeing was delightful, and quite the workout.  It is a must do winter activity for me from here on out.   Perhaps again this weekend.
