Snowshoeing Loch Vale

The weekend started out with some trepidation:

There was a fire on the Switzerland Trail, not far from my house.  Fortunately it was only a half acre fire, and the forest service got it contained quickly.  Still a little worrying.

But today was much more fun.  We went with friends Eric and Katie to Rocky Mountain National Park for some snowshoeing.  A lot of climbing...

...led to some great views.

Loch Vale, RMNP

It was hard work getting up there, but a lot of fun coming back down!
