Got up today to a nice 8" or so of snow. It has been years since we have had this much snow before Christmas. Took my little one out twice to play in it. We both had a great time.
There was a post on the local fourm about a snow ride but I went for the snow shoes. Since the park was still closed for hunting I told my wife that I would go for a night hike and that should not be an issue.
I have had a pair of snow shoes for several years but only get to bring them out only once or twice a year. When I went to put them on tonight something was not looking right with the left shoe. Part of the rubber that goes around my boot had broke. I did not let that stop me.
About 40 minutes into this hike I had a problem. The rubber broke in two places.
I had to take the left shoe off and walk back with only the right snowshoe. This was like having one leg shorter than the other.Still after having an equipment issue this was still a great hike with a light snow.
