snowy creek erin snowshoeing snowy creek james snowshoeing While James and I were up visiting his family in Western New York, we took advantage of one snowy afternoon to go snowshoeing. Not minding the rapidly falling snow or the fact that soon the light would be gone, we strapped on his parents’ snowshoes and slid our way down the slope behind their house to walk along the snowy creek.

Winter is so much more tolerable when there are wintry sports to pursue, isn’t it? When James lived out in Utah (many moons ago), I went for a visit and we spent the entire time tramping through snowy woods and swooping down the sides of mountains. I don’t think I complained about being cold once.

I’m trying to harness the same goodwill toward the season this year, snow in the city or no.

    Oh. Oh. I have sorely missed being with my husband's family in New England for snow shoeing this year. Thank you for making me feel like I was there, even just a tiny bit.

    I really want to go snowshoeing! I will have to try it one of these days while up visiting in-laws! Our climate is a little too warm to be able to do much.
