Beaver Creek

There was some talk in some homes this morning about "too cold" at 9º below 0 with a brisk breeze.  Nevertheless, eight snowshoers came out and enjoyed the clear skies and bright sunshine (some said "too warm" for what I'm wearing").  We chose a route that protected us from the breeze and warmed us up.  After a couple hours of walking through the pines and spruce, enjoying Beaver Creek campground's scenery, our well-protected feet said "that's enough." 
We'll try to find another beautiful winter place next Monday.  All are welcome to join us--meet at the South Fork Visitor Center before 10:00 a.m.
Yes, it's likely to be cold, so dress adequately.  You'll go slowly enough to see some beautiful sights, such as these:
8 bundled up; the scarves were stowed about an hour later.
