Snowshoeing part 2

11 Feb

Brandon and I went snowshoeing in Denali National Park on Sunday. The hike was extremely tiring but definitely fun!

We started out at the Winter Visitors Center at the Park & snowshoed to Horseshoe Lake.

The weather was perfect! I’m so glad I layered. As we were walking I had to strip off layers because I began to sweat! About 10 minutes in to our hour and a half hike I had to take off my gloves, my scarf, and my balaclava. Haha.

(Brandon snowshoed to the middle of Horseshoe Lake!)

Brandon thought I was going to die. Lol. I was breathing so hard and my face was beet red! Haha. BUT I survived and was very proud of us after we finished the hike.

After we got home, Brandon was showing my mom the trail map and where we snowshoed…little did we know..we actually snowshoed on a black trail (meaning the most difficult). Agh!! After finding that out Brandon and I were like, “Heck yea! We kicked butt!” Haha.

Love to all!!

    That’s awesome,, think about the cardio workout you got…When you said it was the black trail, I thought that you might say it was a black bear trail, where it is common to see black bear on it…LOL I would think of that….love ya
