Last Spring I hiked along the Overlook Trail in Jamaica State Park.
This time I ventured out with Chicago-daughter
- on showshoes.
It was a beautiful, sunny day - the first part of the trail follows the West River.
You can see it behind the trees - the reflection is so bright, it almost looks like snow.
-and a rare photo of me with Chicago-daughter
- wow it sure feels different on this side of the camera!
A kind lady saw me shooting photos of the river and offered to take a picture for us.
I'm hesitant to hand over my camera (you know, you can take the girl out of the city...)
but then - the image of a chase scene on snowshoes came to mind...
This is the section of the river called "the dumplings"
The snow on top of these boulders makes them look a bit more like marshmallows.
This was my first snowshoeing adventure, but it won't be my last.
I enjoyed it far more than I expected - and - I'm not nearly as klutzy on snowshoes as I am on skis.
