Ptarmigan Trail snowshoer 2006

Laura and I went showshoeing on December 18 and 19, 2006, while Laura was on Christmas break. We were going to build a snow cave, but there was not enough snow where we camped, so we slept under the stars.

Let's look for a campsite.

We decided to hike out in the morning when it started snowing on us.
But we went exploring before heading back to the car.
The snow was finally deep enough for snowshoes.
Laura says these trees are dead.
I busted both snowshoes. Pieces of crap...
