Snowshoeing in a Winter Wonderland

Snow too deep to ride in woods, too much snow on side of the roads for the road bike. So, grabbed the snowshoes it hit the local park. It was great to be in the woods all alone. Some old boot tracks for a bit, but the farther I got the less there were, till finally none but mine and the deer tracks.

Haven't really had a lot of deep snow the last couple of years, so the snowshoes have gone unused. But today was perfect. It was so quiet you could hear the snow falling from the branches and landing in the snow. I was surprised that I didn't see any deer, perhaps they're waiting for the 40 degree day tomorrow.

By the way, it's not easy to take a pic of myself. Push the button, run up the trail in showshoes, try to turn around, click!
