Every January, Single Horizons has a snowshoeing event and Gord and I have gone. We really enjoy it and afterward we always say we want to get our pair of snowshoes.
When we woke up to snow the morning, we were inspired to get some! So we headed over to Canadian Tire and they had a couple pair to choose from ... the traditional wooden kind or the newer lighter kind. I got the Powderidge Ladies Crest Snowshoe.
As we were driving home, we stopped at High Park to try them out.
There was lots of fresh snow.
We headed west and went along one of the trails that led to Grenadier Pond.
Grenadier Pond is frozen so we snowshoed on it on the fresh snow.
There were lots of people sliding down the hill.
We headed into the woods.
Right after this picture, I climbed a hill, slid in some leaves and went for a header. Ha!
We ended up by John and Jemima Howard's gravestone.
Then we made our way back to the car.
We were there almost two hours and snowshoed almost 4kms.
Though we weren't as spunky when we finished as when we started, we felt awesome!
Can't wait to do it again!
