For Christmas, Megan and I got each other snowshoes. We had used them before on a cabining trip up in NH and had a great time, so we both (independently) thought it would be fun to have some of our own. We’ve been having a nice snowy winter the last few weeks, and we finally got a chance to give our new shoes a try last week. We took a walk down along the Cushman Brook near our house. We’ve had about a foot of snow in the last two weeks, and it has stayed cool, keeping the snow very soft and powdery.
