Snowshoeing 2:39:00  4.0 mi (39:45 / mi)
15 inches of fluffy white stuff arrived overnight. Jess and I snowshoed out the back door and bushwhacked through the woods and wetlands. I tried to focus on reading the terrain and making good route choices . Jess focused on finding new smells. Given the thick ice, I ventured out into a few places we've never gone before. Fought through a cattail marsh that was a mogul/mine field of snow-covered tussocks. Came out later right at a snowy bridge over a small stream, that turned out to not be a bridge after all. Making matters worse, after I crawled out on the other side, I found uncrossable water just beyond, and we had to jump back over and find another way around. Wet feet and a rapidly-diminishing bag of dog treats aside, it was a pretty great morning.
