Snowshoe trek leads to pinnacle of winter scenery

Mount McLoughlin, at 9,945 feet is a backdrop as Sue and I take a break.

Fellow Ashlanders Chris and Judy inspired us to get snowshoes.

A spring-like day presented the perfect chance to head up to the Cascades about a half hour from Ashland for a snowshoe trek.

We started at about the 5,000-foot level and went up gentle slopes for magnificent mountain views.

After years of sparse snowfall, southern Oregon has had a banner year, with more than 19 feet falling on the ski slopes at Mount Ashland.

    Looks like fun. I’ve only show shoed once at Badger. Everyone in the group fell once, even the Ranger leading the walk. After that, it was all good!

      This was just our third time on snowshoes. Other times were at Badger…where we all fell too. Yesterday was much easier. Maybe because of poles. I can’t remember whether we used them before.
