Getting the snowshoes ready

This is a recycled post from my blog's first year. Thought it was a good time to post again since it's one of my favourite activities and from the forecast, sounds like it won't be long now.


The best thing about snowshoeing is looking behind you. Something about that narrow tunnel stamped into a fresh sheet of white snow makes me feel like an explorer. The sole human visiting a magical place with drooping spruce branches and secretive silence. I was here.

I'd love to be someplace where I could actually use snowshoes!

Hi Terry! Followed over from Diane's blog. Someone named Wolfpaw with your icon is following my blog now - is that you?

I've never tried snowshoeing, but have always wanted to. I bet it is so beautiful out in the woods and fields after a fresh snow. Mmmmm.

I love that! We don't have snow here yet, but it should be here for Thanksgiving. There is something magical about the quietness of falling snow. Great post Terry!

I just read the first chapter of the book, Terry and I was sucked in right away.....transported to that sled with Becca.

I'll be buying several copies of this.....but we're going to finagle getting them autographed by the genius who wrote them.

Cool picture. I'm actually hoping for a late and short winter. I can't believe I still have knock out roses and I live in Michigan.
