Hiking,  Snow Shoeing

Show Shoeing on a Trail Hike

Had such fun yesterday going on a trail hike and blazing some trails with our snow shoes. Snow shoeing? Shoeing? Too many vowels in a row if you ask me, but I’ll go with it.

But first, the snow shoes!

New Show Shoes

Picked these up last year off of REI and they worked great at breaking the trail for the Mrs.

I loaded up a small back pack with some home made hot chocolate, extra hats, gloves, and we hit the trail.

My pack also carried poles at the ready but never needed to use them. Wasn’t sure what I needed so I over packed a little bit for our 2 1/2 hour hike. We ended up covering 3 miles.

Home made hot chocolate

Hot Chocolate Recipe:

  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • (dissolve the first three together and then add)
  • 1 quart (4 cups) of Milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Don’t scald the milk. Comes out wonderful and better than any pre-made hot chocolate mix in a bag.

See you on the trails!
