Noel wanted to snowshoe for her birthday but also whenever there was snow and a clear schedule. This weekend worked well.
Thanks to Chumley for intel.
We weren't expecting so much snow on the ascent. With a lunch break it took 4hrs hiking in the powder to get to the FR300. That was about all the daylight and knees we had to make it back down too. I got Noel to break trail for a minute for a photo, then she went right back to caboosing. No tracks out there besides the animals.
Those little kickstands on the rented MSR snowshoes were great for the ups. We had to engage snowshoes at about halfway up the hill. It was between 1'-28". I lost a pole snow basket and had to dig around shoulder deep to retrieve it.
