West Bench Snowshoeing

Saturday, January 25, 2014

On Saturday I headed up onto the Grand Mesa with Diane and Jackson to get in a little snowshoeing on the West Bench Trail. The temperature this afternoon was in the 40’s, so hiking was very pleasant in a lightweight jacket. The Mesa doesn’t appear to have received any fresh snow recently, so the trail was well-packed the entire time. It was a nice way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon. Here are a few photos I took on our little hike.

I liked the spotlight on this little group of aspen trees.

This was actually Jackson’s first time snowshoeing.

This is probably my favorite photo from the day.
