Snowshoeing!!


Saturday I tried Snowshoeing for the first time......... it was so much FUN! It just like hiking...in the sense that you are walking......I can do that! I am taking on a part time job this winter by being what they call "Hill Rep" for the Bellevue Ski School. So for 8 Saturdays we go to the mountain.......so far I haven't been out to do anything. Everyone says to down hill ski.......but it has been years since I have done that and well to be honest I am a little scared I might hurt myself!




















We started out and instantly I was blown away by the beauty and scenery. I realized instantly that snowshoeing and cross country skiing were going to be more of "my thing". It was quiet and oh so lovely out there. Ok....so the snowshoes were a bit noisy....but it was nice ....the sun even made an appearance. We ended hiking about 5 1/2 miles.......and by the end I was sore but it was worth it. It was nice to get out and get some fresh air...oh yes and some good exercise!




I went with my coworker Karen, her daughter Amanda and some of Amanda's friends



me!




on the trail




look at that view!



It was simply an amazing day.........and I am so glad I tried something new.......I will be putting this on my list of preferred activities.
