We spent yesterday snowshoeing on the Kendall Peak Lakes Trail at Snoqualmie Pass, near Hyak. Amanda has asked a few times if we could trade in the speed of skiing for a more leisurely walk in the snow, so I rented snowshoes from REI and we headed out to the pass. Considering there hasn't been much new snow to ski on, it was a perfect day to try something new.
I actually enjoyed snowshoeing quite a bit. I only wish I would have known that we needed to pay cash or check to park service for a Sno-Park permit ($20/day or $40/season) because that sent us all over the place trying to find an ATM and we got a later start on the trail. We got a good workout hiking up for a couple hours. We didn't reach the lakes because of our late start, but I wouldn't hesitate to try for it again. We got a few photos at a break.
And then my camera battery died! Fail!
