The kids and I decided to snowshoe a different trail this morning. This trail is one of our faves in the summer because it follows along Ten Mile Creek and there are plenty of places for little people to stop and play and be adventurous. One of the kids favorites spots is at a small run off near the beginning of the trail. In the warmer months, my kids love to dam it up with pebbles and figure which way the water will run. Today, their favorite little stream was pure ice and that seemed to be just as fun. We spent about 2 hours on the trail just hiking along and stopping when someone needed a bit of a break. Alice got the Snowshoer of the Day award. She led the way, never complained and even wanted to keep going when the group was ready to turn around. It was a great snowy morning. By the time we arrived back at the car we all had about 3 inches of snow on our hats and jackets. It was a beautiful day to be outside, that is for sure.
