Snowshoeing the Seven Bridges Trail

About two years ago over the Christmas break, Noelle, myself, and Noelle's cousin Leah drove over to the Seven Bridges Trail to do some snowshoeing. We enjoyed the experience so much on our first visit that Noelle and I decided to return for some more adventure. The wildlife refuge that the trail is located in is quite scenic and winter, we've discovered, is a much better time for exploring this trail than summer. The reason: besides the snow and wintry scenery, wintertime is much more pleasant because of the lack of insects, particularly mosquitoes.

We snowshoed as far as the Black River, stopped for a break, and then headed back to the car. It was an exhilirating experience in the cold and the exercise felt great. We're looking forward to doing some more snowshoeing tomorrow!
