Winter offers so many opportunities for recreation. It also offers peacefullness of snow blanketed wilderness and solitude that can be found closer to the trailhead since not too many people really take advantage of winter days for outdoor activities, no matter how nice and sunny they turn out to be.

Snowshoeing is one of the ways of winter wilderness travel. It's just like walking but with snowshoes on, you can walk even in several feet deep snow without postholing and being tired and miserable.

I'm trying to explore backcountry areas as much as I can but the winter weather does not always allow for a safe backcountry travel and in days like that we have to stick with safer trails like this one.
