White Salmon Snowshoe Work Party 02-23-2013

What better way to spend a foggy winter day in the mountains than helping out a couple local clubs to brush out and flag a snowshoe trail?

Sharon Robinson, Bud Hardwick and a handful of others from the Mount Baker Club and the Nooksack Nordic Ski Club met up in Maple Falls and then carpooled to the White Salmon Sno-Park located just beyond the Hwy 542 DOT Maintenance shed.

We geared up with our snowshoes or skis and a variety of tools and then proceeded to spend the next six hours improving signage and clearing branches to make the snowshoe trails easier to locate and follow.

Photo ops weren't the priority for the day so there are only a couple images worth sharing, but the memories will last a lifetime.

Kudos and thanks to all of you who helped establish and maintain these great trails!  Keep up the great work and I hope to join you all again soon!

My route included about 8 miles of travel and 800 feet of elevation gain.
