On Sunday, we finally got back out into the mountains. Dylan, Ann, Mark and I all snow shoe’d all the way up to Lake Agnes and back that day. The trail is supposed to only be 0.8 miles long, but the campground you normally drive through was gated and we parked on the side of CO 14. From there, it was about 2.5 miles up!
It was still a great day. The powder was a great consistency to make the snow shoeing interesting, but not impossible. It was an intense (and desperately needed) work out in an incredibly beautiful place. Even with clouds and snow throughout the day, the views were incredible.
I’ll have more pictures up, and stories about Dylan’s split board in a day or so. For now, this is somebody we met at the actual trailhead (still well over a mile from our car). After some egging on from his buddies, he climbed up on top of this house and snowboarded off!
