Snowshoeing in Madison County

Yesterday John, Emily, Jeff & I headed off on a day trip to Madison County. After lunch in a cafe on the square in Winterset we headed to Pammel State Park for some snowshoeing. It was a crisp sunny day, which we felt was perfect for snowshoeing. Apparently we were the only people that felt that way, as we were the only people in the park. It was a great way to spend a Saturday. I actually enjoy winter when I'm able to get outside and have a good time.

No snowshoes here yet -- we simply haven't gotten down to the store. Now so many places are out of stock and with four people to outfit that makes things a challenge. With Tommy being so young, we're really not sure how long we'd last out there anyway. Although knowing him, he'd probably outlast us. We might hold off until summer and buy them cheap at Play it Again Sports or something.

Also... we have a lot less snow on the ground right now than it looks like you guys do. (!!!) How crazy is that! We had a warm up last week. It poured rain and was nearly 50 degrees and melted off most of our snow. I'm sure it'll all even out by the end of winter.

It looks like you guys had a lot of fun. I totally know what you mean about going out and doing something in the winter... it helps SO much! All it requires is the right gear and bundling up a bit more.

Looks like a ton of fun! Nice to have the park to yourselves, but sad that it wasn't being used by others!
