The Earth Spirit Community Snowshoe Hike: Taking a Step Back into our Local History
There are few things more peaceful or serene than enjoying a walk through the winter woods. Add in a fresh snowfall, and it is easy to fall in love all over again with Winter in Western New York. Yet moving through deep snow, or on thawed and refrozen trails, can be challenging and even daunting. This is where a pair of snowshoes can save the day. Not only can you literally rise above a potentially uneven and slow-going trail, but you can leave the trail altogether to move across snow drifts and through the trees, reaching quiet and secluded areas where the only other tracks are from the neighborhood wildlife. Exploring off-trail may or may not be your cup of tea, but the relative ease of traveling over the snow on snowshoes, combined with the fun and joy of simply being outdoors, might just persuade you to join Earth Spirit in considering snowshoeing a highlight of your winter season.
