Project 52 - Week 8/52

I mentioned on Tuesday that my family and I went snowshoeing last weekend. We headed up to Blewett Pass and onto the Wenatchee Crest Trail. It is a fairly easy trail, but does have a few inclines both ways. I found this article about snowshoeing and what a workout it is. I could not agree more! It is a great form of exercise that gets you out in the snow, what could be better? It was also a great opportunity to take photos of some beautiful views that I would not have had the pleasure to see otherwise. There is something magical about the majestic views from the ridge line and about the sense of accomplishment I had from a long hike to see the views. I will definitely go snowshoeing again and of course my camera will come along with me!

"Behind all the fun of being out on the trail, I get to reboot my mind. And one finds their favorite area, and there is a point where those endorphins kick in, and the most amazing solutions come to you. You find your inspiration hill." – Phillip Gary Smith
