Turns out it’s not the shoes, after all; it’s the snowshoes (and the balaclava)

Rather than let a little thing like winter slow us down, we took the opportunity to head north, driving eight hours to the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a week of snowshoeing. We had limited internet, but plenty of cold and now that we’re home, I’ll try to put together a few posts about the week. In the meantime, here are a few teasers.

In my last post, I suggested that shoes make the man. I was wrong.  It’s not the shoes.  It’s the snowshoes.

And the balaclava (wind chills hovering around 40 degrees below zero at the treeline on Mt. Washington).
