Despite my fears of being cold and touching snow (on purpose) I bought snow shoes and winter gear. Maybe being bored is even worse than being cold???
In any case, I went snow shoeing for the first time in my life with Susana today up to White Pine in Little Cottonwood Canyon. It was awesome. Maybe even better than just hiking?? Not cold at all (see me stripping off hat, gloves, and coat in the pictures). I have never seen so much snow in my entire life. I have a new addiction.
