Paradise Park

Well, that was tough!  6.5 hours up and 4.5 hours down.  Snow shoes and micto spikes were both helpful at different times.  15.5 miles and 3500′ elevation gain.

Since I’m always hand stitching in the car, we took this photo of Elizabeth’s quilt that I’m hand binding at the trail head.

I’m not a fan of strapping four pounds of snow shoes to my back.

It was way easier and much more fun to get down this hill in this manner.

Instead of sledding down, we used micro spikes to get up the hill.
