Definitely a lot of snow there Dan; it must be hard to walk when it's that deep. Another example of the quality of the Oly standard lens.

(Perhaps you should ship some snowshoes down to Greg C and Bob B down in the winter wonderland formerly known as sunny Texas!!

Now I think I will go make some hot chocolate, as I get cold just looking at your photos.

Maybe not snow shoes, but I sure coulda used something other than dress shoes and/or sneakers. I've falled on my tail bone 3 times , the last of which has had my back & neck sore the past 2-3 days. I was not made for this [email protected]

It is beautiful to look at and these scenics are really pretty, but I am glad it was someone other than me walkin' in it.

I wasn't cold out there though. Just like any exercise, I was drenched in sweat when I came back home.

I thought that snowshoeing would make me float above the snow, not simply "sink less"...

THANKS but I simply decided to stay in as much as possible, it is an old guy thing with me nowadays.......

I do know about snowshoes though and walked many miles of 'trap' line through the jack pine of northwest Ontario back in another lifetime 50-years ago.
