Bear Brook State Park
I want to take a moment to thank Leeapeea for organizing yesterdays Snowshoe event out at Bear Brook State Park. Josh and I had the privilege of getting up before dawn and meeting out at the park for a few extra miles before the rest of the gang showed up. It was a beautiful morning, fresh snow and crisp air. We saw many animal tracks of our furry friends the moose, deer, squirrel and snow hare. Once the rest of the gang showed up we had quite a group. What was thought to have been a 9 mile loop turned out to be cut in half which in itself was over 11 miles. Josh and I managed to slog through 18 miles of fun. The afternoon temps rose to about 38 degrees in the mark making the snow super sticky and tough to travel on but we fared well. Breaking trail was a blast up Bear Mtn and we thank the snowmobiles for packing the rest of the park out as we made our way up and over Hall. Hey... instead of me babbling on, here is a video of our day out in the snow!
