HAPPY NEW YEAR!Time is flying already! Just below the Carson Spur, on Highway 88 and 5 miles below Kirkwood....we stopped New Year's Eve for a late day snowshoe at Silver Lake. I led the way.
Then made a dash for it! The trail was well marked by snowmobile.
My snow bootie cuffs filled with snow very quickly...so we made a few snow removal pit stops. Onward to Silver Lake.
It was late afternoon and the sun was starting to sink away.
Views all around. Clouds flowing overhead....on their way to bringing big snows during the weekend.
There was a number of folks fishing through the frozen lake...you can see a dot of one in towards middle left in the photo below. We had originally thought to snowshoe onto the lake and perhaps across...but mom fell into a snow hole on the lake, and we quickly re-routed to higher ground and found these icicle trees! Mmmmmmm...you're tasty!
Yummers! I love you icicles!
The 'it's snowing' game with dad. Found a sweet snowed-in dock which is part of the Kit Carsen Lodge . A great spot for watching the sun sink away. Ahhh....I'll just stay.
