This year’s lab snowshoe trip was moderately successful.  As luck would have it, the first major storm of the season rolled in just as we were ready to head to Peter Grubb cabin for an easy overnighter.  The good news is that everyone came back in one piece; not so good news is that we did not even make it to the cabin after wallowing waist-deep in fresh snow for half a day.  See Thad’s Snow Awards post for details.  Let’s hope we have better luck next year.

And in the meantime – it’s time to start planning our summer backpacking trip.  Let’s see what natural disasters that will precipitate.
