Today was a marvelous day for snowshoeing, as 8 of us happily discovered as we trekked from the lower ski lodge through various roads near white salmon.
Lots of skiers/snowboarders, but we had much of the snowshoe trails to ourselves.
A big shout-out and thanks to Ed Alm, who really knows his way around the area. He did most of the trail breaking and led us to The Knob for a lovely lunch spot, where the sun made a welcome appearance, even bringing a shirtless snow warrior to greet us! Shukshan came out of the clouds long enough to guide us back to the parking area and, tired but contented, we followed lots of vehicles heading down the mountain.
Happy New Year!
