I’ve lived in Colorado for most of my life, and yet I’ve never been snowshoeing. I finally decided to check it out with a trip to Brainard Lake. We rented all of our gear and got up to the area to find a lot of other people doing the same thing. We had our snowshoes on for about 5 minutes, and then we carried them for the rest of our 4-mile hike. Walking turned out to be a lot easier on the packed snow. It was pretty fun!
