10 great views of The South Fork below the big dam.

A day after our first "finally" snow, four of us went on fresh powder  with our snowshoes.  We enjoyed the many views of snow, cliffs, and "our" creek.  Here at the Big Meadows area, it is at about 1/3 its distance, headed downstream to South Fork.  

No hike on Wednesday.  Next one is next Monday. Starting time is now 10 a.m.—departing the Visitor Center on the hour.  If you haven't been snowshoeing with us, you are welcome to come along.  Check our town's three rental and sales of snowshoe.  It is more fun than you might imagine; no danger; fairly short hikes (2-4 miles total), no charge.  We ask that you leave pets at home but bring a wife or husband or kids who have  stamina.  Prepare yourself for beautiful scenery.

In case of snow disappearing temporarily, we will have other hikes using regular boots all through the winter and spring.  Most of us are also skiers, so you can look for one or more of us on the slopes Tuesday-Sunday.

Happy winter to all of you.  After our slow start here, it is looking very good right now.
