With Mark and Dave I went on a snowshoe hike today around Clark Gully near Naples, NY.
It was a blast!
This was my second time on snow shoes. The first was yesterday afternoon; a short hike in Mendon Ponds Park to try them out after picking them up at Park Ave bike shop that morning. The weather was great. When I got up this morning, saw that more snow had fallen overnight and hearing all the storm talk on CNN I was a little curious how the day would play out. It turned out to be a gorgeous day. It was overcast when we started but after half an hour the sun broke through and we had beautiful blue skies.
Beautiful blue skies to accompany Dave and me on the well-marked trail that mr Frank had prepared for us, ahem. It was a mystery that we contemplated the whole hike: All of Mark’s bright-colored tags tied to the trees were gone! Who removed them? When? And why? We discussed many a well-founded conspiracy!
No matter though. Even while we took some ad hoc routes the hike was fantastic and not exactly knowing what route we were taking to get to the chimney waypoint and the waterfall just added to the fun for me.
