Courtney and I received snowshoes for christmas this year. Mine were from my brother and Courtney's from my mom. We didn't have a lot of time to go on a big adventure, but we just had to get up in the mountains and give them a try. Chataquah park near Boulder was the perfect spot to break them in. We honestly had a blast. These things are going to be so much fun. They let you explore places that you normally wouldn't be able to get to when there is snow on the ground. Plus it is a really fun way to get some good exercise. I am crazy sore already.
Thanks for the gifts guys. We are going to put them to great use.
