I set out on my snow shoes this morning around 8:45am Est, Shortly after getting into the trail the previous snow shoe trail stopped and I had to forge forward and blaze the trail to the top. Even with many breaks and taking my time, my body was running out of steam to push forward. I was sinking at least 2 feet in on each step and moving forward was a struggle in itself. Even so I made it to one vantage point and took some pictures. I then decided to not push myself to the brink and get myself into trouble. I turned and head downhill making it safely back to home.
The region got upwards of 2 feet of snow over the last 48 hours, there was not a soul in sight, let alone up on a mountain. until I went to packup and head down. a group of 10+ snow showers were making their push for the first look out point where I turned around. they thanked me for blazing the trail and on my way I went.
Maybe, next weekend ill revisit and forge to the final look out where the Sota spot is and finish my mission. For now, I will call today a Successful failure.
Till the next snow adventure
