edit: no go up to Lennys rest, need snowshoers stat!
Get up there....MORE!!! I rode/pushed the Roxy loop on Monday and finished just as the squall started dumping...visibility 15 ft going down the Canyon. Someone had snow shoe'd up to Lenny's but the rest of Roxy's was mine and and a big kitties alone. A few more runs with fatties on it and it would be golden.
I could get my snowshoes out and hike it, but why? Seems pretty boring, that road would suck so bad. I prefer more...remote places for my snowshoeing, and I usually don't stay on trails.
Anyway, sweet vid! I absolutely hate that Mercury song though.
The road up the canyon is usually plowed - I'm talking about the start of the CO trail needs snowshoers. But according to the goat it's been taken care of - so you go to your remote regions and play off trail.
Without rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other. Red Foreman - That 70's show.
I've asked that question many times... Chicago vs Denver area. Being an outdoors person an a mtb fanatic, the choice was apparent. Needless to say, I'm spending more time in the front range than Chicago.
Obviously I get that, but you can't drive up, so you'd want to hike the 7 miles or whatever it is with the snowshoes on your back on a road, then put them on to hike a little bit and turn around? I wasn't trying to be a smartass honestly. I just can't imagine why anyone would snowshoe that, at least not from that side.
Honestly the whole fun of snowshoeing for me is exploring random areas in the middle of nowhere. Trails are cool and all, but if you have snowshoes you can walk pretty much anywhere so it's fun to get a little lost sometimes.
