Snowshoes



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.

  1. Wow. The air conditioning is on, and I'm sitting here barefoot and wearing shorts. The videos made me cold!

    1. I know what you mean. Looking at videos of snowshoes almost made me think of Christmas. Now that's a scary thought in May.

  2. I tried snowshoes once when I was a teenager--what a workout that was!! :)
    I haven't been to Alaska, but it's at the top of my travel to do list!

    1. I've gone snowshoeing a couple of times. It's never as easy as others make it look. :)
