Christmas Snowshoeing

This Christmas Day I had planned to do nothing (like lay in bed all day nothing), then friends called to say they were taking their new snowshoes to Mt. Seymour (on the north shore of Vancouver) for a trial run. It was a gorgeous sunny day so what was I do - of course I would join them! We hiked our way toward the summit, stopping for warm tea with rye breaks, water breaks, snacking with the birds breaks... (it was a pretty challenging climb for someone who had planned to be horizontal all day). Fortunately James was thinking ahead and brought along Crazy Carpets. So on a sunset descent, rather than trudging up and down the trail, James skied while Rhonda and I slid and screamed our way down the green runs - soooo much fun! It was a much more challenging and exciting day than I had imagined. Thanks you two!

Sounds like a blast! Better than being horizontal all day. I really enjoy getting out on a winter day and snowshoeing through the woods right outside my door. It really boosts my mood and attitude when winter closes in.

Looks like fun Glenda. I spent Christmas day in an airplane. Saw the sun rise above the Rockies and the sun set over the Great Lakes.
