A “So Long” Snowshoe

It wasn’t a soooo looonnnggg snowshoe! It was a "so long to 2007" snowshoe! My very good friend and I choose this way to say goodbye and hello. Something healthy, fun, active, outside. We could not have asked for a more perfect day.

wind there was not
at times the sun felt hot

Chester Lake was the destination choice. We have conquered that snowshoe trip numerous times in the past but today was different. It was special and unique in that today’s adventure stood for something it never stood for before. This was an accomplishment in inspiration and motivation for each of us! We laughed, smiled, we joked, complained (hey, we’re only human), we planned, gossiped a tiny bit, we wished and hoped. We had lots of quiet time, it was comfortable. For me, I was being introspective, trying to be strong. What about you?

I am the picnic girl and my good friend proved she is too!
Vision this!

A toast and a resolution!

Goodbye 2007! Hello 2008!
