Perrot State Park: Ascent of Brady's Bluff
Another great day for a snowshoe! Noelle, Mom, and I packed up the gear and headed over to the local state park for some more winter fun. it was Mom's first time on the shoes and I think she was a bit nervous at first, but she and the rest of us made an impressive, windy ascent of Brady's Bluff. The view from the top was spectacular. This was the first time I'd been up there on a day that was not hot and muggy. The lack of atmospheric haze and snowy landscape made the view impressive.
The trails that we traveled today offered more than just a climb up the bluff though. We also traveled along the mighty Mississippi River and through some the beautiful frosted forest.
