So - landed a new winter job as a snowshoe tour guide at the local ski resort. Cool! I've been snowshoeing since my late teens, in the early 1970's. This is going to be maybe three nights a week, and doesn't pay much, but I'm having fun and helping people explore the great outdoors.

Tonight was the first tour I guided. Just a small group. I thoroughly enjoyed.

Guy, that sounds so cool!

Snowshoes are great! Where we live now, you rarely need to use them, but plenty of places in Upper Mich for that.

I’d love doing that for a fun job.

My second date with my wife was a 12 mile round trip snow shoe hike with 100” of snow on the ground to see ice jams on Lake Superior and a great sunset!

Wow, looks like you’ve got good snow. We’ve very little down in the Blues.
Looks like a great hike, have fun.

Well, the snowshoe tours are at the local ski resort, and they're busy making snow. This is at about 5,000' too. Down in the valley where I live, it's only about 700' - and I've got maybe an inch of snow covering the lawn this morning. Probably less.

There's a lot going on up on the mountain at night! Snow making, snow grooming, night skiing, and of course the best thing... Snowshoe Tours! LOL.

I had fun last night and I think we'll all continue having fun & helping people explore the great outdoors.

12 miles is a long doggone walk, snowshoes or not! (y)

Kath used to snowshoe & ski with me, but not anymore. We still go on nice walks, particularly along the river where there's always something interesting to find.

Snowing all morning today. And predicted to do so for several days as the temps drop & drop... Should be some good skiing and snowshoeing.

Winter has finally hit! :)

BTW, the snowshoe tour guide thing has been a lot of fun.
