Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Lost lake trail, winter hiking in Colorado   Sat Mar 12, 2011 11:59 pm

We met up with Claudia, JD, and Ginger in hopes of some late season snowshoeing in Nederland, CO. We drove up Eldora rd till the plow stopped and it was hiking in from there, what normaly is a dirt road to a trail head in the summer was a snowy hiking trail in March. We were headed to Hessie trail head to go up to Lost lake. We parked on the side of the road and started to get geared up. i swear i can't go one trip with out something happening! i have S&J hooked up to the skijoring ropes and have them hooked to the back of my car as i got my stuff on, after im not sure how many min i looked up and was like WHERES JACK!!!!! something cut the rope on the skijoring line and he was gone!!! the 3 of us started yelling his name and he was over in the yard to the home across the street, he stoped to pee on a tree and then came runing back, oh THANK GOD!!! im happy to know his recall works but if he was to far to hear us i wonder if he would come back, i dont want to know...So after that we got started around 9 am and packed our snowshoes in our packs as they were not needed for what we could see, but you never know. the trail was packed and we used our yaktracxs on our boots for grip.
i used my tracks and the start to finish stats are as follows
we hiked 6.43 miles
total time was 3h 15m
elevation start was 8,744ft higest was 9,775ft. we gained 1,857ft
now on to the fun part... PICTURES!!!

Great pictures!!
It was a great day and good fun!
(Jenn, I promise I'll get in better shape for next snowshoeing season so I can actually keep up a little closer!) Smile

Jack was great when called!
Sierra is TOO cute!
And Ginger looks so much like Sierra, JD actually called Ginger 'Sierra' tonight!!
