Ridiculous... but so exciting!
I decided Frankie and I would take the Southern Exposure Trail. At 2.2 miles, this is the longer of the two snowshoe trail; the Northern Exposure Trail is just 1.3 miles. Since we so rarely get such perfect snowshoeing conditions, I wanted to make the most of it. Even without any practice yet this year, Frankie's snowshoeing skills have greatly improved: no more stepping on his own snowshoes. He was able to move around easily: running, jumping, climbing over things. He did fall down a lot, but that was entirely by design, run and flop, run and flop. He got overheated with all the dashing about, and I wished I brought his rain coat, so he could have had a lighter-weight shell. We did stop and remove his mid-layer, but he refused to take off his coat, like I did, because he wanted to keep playing in the snow. We had so much fun!
