I really REALLY like hiking in the snow. I think this means we need to get ourselves some snow shoes so we can do it more often (for more than three days a year) up at Mt. Hood!
Today's hike looked like that (above) and hiked mostly like this (below) — like hiking through a Slurpee. It was pretty hard work, actually. We did just under 4 miles in an hour and a half.
It's about 35 degrees out now and the snow is melting off the trees, but it's still quite pretty out.
Looks like the forecast for the next couple of weeks around here is just rain, rain, and more rain. Our week up at Silver Falls State Park might be a soppy one!
