What would a tour of Alaska be without a discussion about snowshoes?
My parents owned a cabin in Palisades. In the winter if we hiked in, we always took a pair of snowshoes. Snowshoeing is a real talent.
Here's a good video about how to walk in snowshoes.
Now to hike to my parents' cabin we had to snowshoe up a mountain, so it wasn't as easy as it looks in that video clip. Nooooo. It was more like the clip that follows. Picture me falling end over end and you'll get the picture.
