Doin’ the Snowshoe Shuffle

My first bucket list post!

I’ve been talking about snowshoeing every winter for years. Last year, a group of my friends went, but I was out of town for the weekend and missed it. I also have lived around snow (during the winter months, of course) my whole life, so it’s a little amazing that it took this long to cross this one off the bucket list.

Late Friday night, a good friend sent me a text to see if I wanted to go snowshoeing the next morning. I dropped everything to take advantage of this chance. Saturday morning, after some trial and error trying to borrow snowshoes, I ended up renting them from Sports Authority. In case you are worried that rental fees are a barrier to entry with this winter sport–don’t be. It was only $10 for the day! I think depending on the rental place, it varies from about $7-15. You can buy snowshoes for $100-200 if you fall in love with it 🙂

We met up with some friends, and up the canyons we went! After some struggles getting the snowshoes on (apparently I have issues with straps), we took pictures.

Ready to go!

Snowshoeing is more fun when you leave the trail 🙂 It’s also considerably harder…

So there you have it! I have been invited to go snowshoeing again in a couple of days. I may have a new winter sport addiction 🙂
