Snowshoeing!

We went snowshoeing today!
and judging by how much the snow changed in just one week, winter is ending early even in the mountains thanks to extremely high temperatures for this time of year--which is our new norm.  I've snowshoed several times in the past, but had never bought snowshoes as I don't like it as well as cross-country skiing, but it DOES make it easier to get off-trail, and our friends have really gotten into it, so I ordered some snowshoes and this was their inaugural run. 

We had taken skis as well, as we were going to do a short loop with skis then switch to snowshoes, but the snow had melted so much and refrozen that it was ICE, and it was just too slick for safe skiing without skins, so it worked out well.  The day was beautiful
and we were able to get into some remoter places.  We even figured out how to take a "selfie" with Andy's new camera:
This week temperatures are supposed to reach a VERY unseasonal 60 degrees, so the days of snow sports are coming to an end, but at least I get to play this year!
