Today Claire and I drove an hour up to Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park to go snowshoeing. Even at 6,000 feet it was RAINING, but since we'd made the drive we went out anyway.
Once we were out, the rain subsided, and we had a great little hike into the snowy wilds of Mt. Lassen. The snow was about 30 inches deep, and wet and heavy, which made for an energy-sapping hour, even though we were takin' it easy. Claire's already zonked out in the bed as I'm writing this!
Can't wait to get back out there when the weather clears up, and I can't wait to give my shot at telemark skiing!
