Snowshoeing East Portal Trailhead, Dec 29, 2013…

It’s been six weeks since my last outing and what better way to get back into in than to do some snowshoeing. I’ve hiked this trail numerous times, but never have done any snowshoeing on it. So today would be that day. No destination in particular just getting outdoors is the main objective.

The temperature was 18 degrees upon arriving in the parking lot and it couldnt have had a better day. Blue skies and lot of sunshine. The wind was a lot worse in the parking lot than it was on the trail, but it’s always windy there at the Moffat Tunnel. And there were a lot of people out today, a few other people snowshoeing and quite a few more people on cross country skis. The conditions were just right, there was plenty of snow to be had up there, 2-3 feet in some areas, maybe even more. It literally was a picture-postcard day up there! It was a fun day and also a tiring one. But definitely a great way to end 2013!
