We went to Glacier National Park yesterday and went snowshoeing. It was a lot of fun. We started out on the Going-To-The-Sun Road and then cut down to Lake McDonald. From there we walked along the shoreline for awhile. This was our first time snowshoeing, other than stomping around in our yard. We took the boys with us and they had a semi-good time. Neil kept asking where we were going. He likes having a destination and doesn't seem to understand the concept of walking just for the sake of walking. He did good, but got tired near the end. He asked me to hold his hand and said, "I'm just not made for this." Funny kid. Nathan was a little more radical and flopped all over the place. It's a good thing snowshoes come with spikes on the bottoms, especially with the way Nathan bounces around. I need to get that kid in snowboarding lessons. But overall, it was a fun trip and I can see myself really getting into this. It's easier than XC skiing and I can take pictures without worrying about falling on my camera. I'd also like to take my XC skis up there sometime too. Lake McDonald is so pretty!
