The new Kicks

It was cool that this year we had a white Christamas in Bikewright Land. That does not happen here all the time. I could count on one hand all the years that I remember that it has snowed on Christmas.

Yesterday the local bike fourm had a post about a snow ride and some made it out but not as a group. Check out Joel Dirt he posted some pictures on his site. Also Crankee has some pictures on his site from the snow we had a week or so ago.

I figured there was a good base of the white stuff to breakout the new snowshoes that I got at the end of last years snow season. I headed out for a 2 hour hike to Camp 7 and back. The weird thing was there were places that the snow was a good 5" deep and then you would hit some spots that it might be 2".

Here are some pictures from my hike.




I have not figured out why this square hole is in the tree, but who ever did it did a good job. Maybe a covert woodpecker cam??








Nice to get out for a couple hours. I hope we get some more snow or I am going to have to make a trip to White Grass to get some real snowshoeing in this year.

Nice shots. Square hole in tree - maybe a fence went through there at one time?

It's starting to look like Iowa around your neck of the woods. Seems lotz of snow in a lot of places these days.
