Dan and I went out to snowshoe yesterday , but the path was so beaten down and narrow that we hiked it instead . I kept putting a foot down into the soft snow about 12″, and then the next steps would try to be lighter so I wouldn’t go through the top layer . Doesn’t work that way ! Still better than breaking new trail for 90 minutes .
We like this hike year round – along the river . I will never tell exactly where it is ! Hidden . Quiet . Hard to get to . Perfect .
We swim here in the summer and its beautiful and hot – but this is gorgeous ! Our temps have warmed up a tad,so the ice is breaking off and floating downstream . I will say that this is the Deschutes River and today it was very very very cold to the touch . Our afternoon was well spent !
