Write Up:
What a gorgeous day for snowshoeing. Earlier in the week the area received most of a foot of new snow, and an additional inch last night. That made for a winter wonderland on this route that provided a little bit of everything: lodgepole pine forests, open meadows, and the sun poking out as we topped out on the ridge between Powderface and Prairie Creeks. The sun stayed with us for the rest of the day, warming the lunch spot and brightening the trek out along Prairie Creek. Breaking trail slowed our pace, but it was steady, and we finished up back at the parking lot just before 3:00PM. It was a real treat to actually snowshoe the entire trail. We only saw two others the whole day, trail runners going the other way, who were happy to have our packed-down trail to follow out for the last half of their run. Thanks for all who came and made it a great day: Jackie, Rhonda, Chris.
