Last March I first snow-shoed in Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park (with a guide through Apex Ex).  LOVED it!  This year purchased 3 more tickets and treated Ash & Tom as a Christmas gift.

Temps kicked up after weeks of snow – just above freezing, sunny in the mountains.  Pretty much perfect 🙂

Same gig as last year – met up at Beaver Meadows Visitors Center in RMNP, followed by a 20 minute drive to Glacier Gorge Trailhead. Poles, shoes, group introductions, porta-potty – then, hit the snowy trail to Nymph Lake.

Today’s snow-shoe itinerary – Nymph, Dream & Emerald Lakes, a 3.6 mile round-trip trek, crazy popular this time of year.

Guide was more aggressive with elevation gain & hill climb than last year’s adventure to Lake Haiyaha.  Wasn’t exactly the walk thru the meadows tour I touted to Ash (sorry) – that said, LOVED it!

Highlights?  Trekking across Dream Lake – ice formations were stunning.  And of course, 3-cheese fondue & apples high in the Rockies aside Emerald Lake.  Honestly, absolutely nothing like it – highly recommended!
