"Learning How to Walk Again...in Snow Shoes!" (pictures)
Our first time throwing the snow shoes on this season. We parked in the MMR parking lot (not-plowed) and we got our gear on. We headed up Phoebes Nable Mt. Trail. Not even 5 minutes into it I tripped and fell! I then stopped to cut a small tree that had bent into the trail. Went to back up and again tripped but caught myself this time. "you can't back up in snow shoes remember!?" laughed Scott.
After turning right we climbed the first steep hill along this logging road and then up the second hill. Here where the trail goes left we went straight down an unmaintained logging road. We followed moose tracks for a bit and also crossed some coyote tracks. The trail began to descend now and this is where I once-again missed-stepped and fell! Usually Scott is the clumsy one in snow shoes...today it was me I guess!
The road ends at a heavily overgrown section of woods. Here we bushwhacked and began to descend heading back in the opposite direction until we reached the stream. We followed it for a little ways until we found a crossing and hiked up the banking to Burrows Farm Trail. From here it was an easy jaunt back to the parking lot.
