Some photos are from Wednesday, March 17, 2010 when I had to turn back because of the snow. So I went home that day and bought snowshoes so I could go back on Sunday and hike on to near Knoll lake. This was the maiden voyage for these snowshoes and also the first time I have ever tried snowshoeing. Nice to hike on top of the snow. I need a longer shoe for softer snow - today's snow was heavy since melting has started so the 22 inch shoes worked. The MSRs are modular and I have a 6 inch extension on order. Will be going to Angel Fire NM in April and will use them there as well.
I could not have done this hike without snowshoes and Grasshopper's track file loaded on my GPS.
