Glacier Lake Trail - March 17, 2002
This snowshoe expedition is rated 4 high-tech $60.00 polycarbonate avalanche shovels out of 5 on the Snowshoe Expedition Shovelometer.
Finally went snowshoeing with Jack and Ruth. They borrowed snowshoes from Kevin, and we all headed up Highway 2 to the Glacier Lake trailhead.
Here's a security tip for Sue: Remember to roll up the freeking window before we lock the doors and head off into the woods. Note the new bright red high-tech $60.00 polycarbonate avalanche shovel that Sue got at REI in a fit of rampant consumerism.
Jack and Ruth were all smiles.
Brunch - M&M's and bagels.

Wandering around - briefly - at the bottom of an avalanche chute.
Trying out the snow bench - the sun finally came out for a minute or two.
Sue butt-sliding across the Scary Snow Bridge.
A Christmas card scene.
On the way home - the view from Highway 2 looking back into the Cascades - wonderful sun and clouds.
