First Snowshoe of the season

Earlier today I grabbed my snowshoes and took off for a quick jaunt up Notch Hill in Nanoose; first time on them this winter!  The first 500m really didn’t have enough snow for snowshoes but I wore them anyways – the excitement was too much for me.  It didn’t take very long before there was 20-25cm of snow under me.  Perfect.

Snow was falling heavily the entire way up but began to slow as soon as I reached the top.  Rad timing; it gave me a deadly view of the harbour and North Nanaimo.  I took a bunch of pictures then ran back down to the car.  I have a feeling that the first Yeti training run is coming soon…
