Snowshoe Saturday

We started out at Twin Lakes, but there wasn't much snow...


So then we headed over to Barlow Pass - lots of snow there. 
Here are Mark and me on the Pacific Crest Trail!



Beautiful blue sky...a little bit of wind...
We went with Jason and Liberty Fort.
Can you see Mt. Hood peaking out behind the trees?
We saw a scout troop getting ready to camp in the snow...here's a boy digging a snow cave.


Mmm...scouts cooking lunch in the snow.
The scout leaders had a tent set up. Hey, we could do that!
 (But why would we want to??)
Another picture of me and Mark with Mt. Hood peeking through the trees.
We won't get lost - the blue diamonds in the tree are the snow trail blaze marks - easy to find our way!
Back at the trail head - next to the PCT sign.


One last view of Mt. Hood on our way back to Oregon City!

Nope, no videos, although all of us fell once, except for Liberty, who stayed upright throughout! There were some slick, icy places!

Beautiful pictures, Mom! Eric had fun sleeping in an igloo several weeks ago with his dad.

It was a beautiful day to get outside. I am glad you guys had so much fun!

Personally, I have never really wanted to sleep in a snow cave, but it does seem like a useful skill to have if you live in a part of the world that gets a lot of snow.

Hooray for beautiful showshoe pictures. You both look so happy to be outdoors. We had a great outside day today, just the four of us. I love the beautiful world so much sometimes.
