Yes, there was still snow on the higher part of the trail and yes, there was the odd icy patch, but for the most part today I walked on actual earth.
I could say it felt good but that would be a wild understatement. My feet practically danced over the earth.
Going back uphill, I almost ran. I have to say one thing for all the snowshoeing this year (and it’s not over yet) – it has built some killer leg muscles. Bring on the hills!
Simon is still working on windows and the transformation is dramatic to say the least. Photos to come when it’s all done.
