Just finished moving to a new house (whose idea was it to move in winter?) and we have emerged from the boxes and disarray. So much going on, so many changes, but it is the start of a new chapter. Each day is a reminder of who we were yesterday and who we can become tomorrow.
January has come and gone and February is still a frozen landscape. Snow piles have quickly reached over mailboxes, around corners, and now threaten to block out windows. We don layer after layer and become indistinguishable from one another.
What do you do when it is below zero and the snow is up to your knees? Snowshoe of course! I took out a new pair of MSR Evo snowshoes for the first time, and was a bit disappointed. The binding system requires the use of bare fingers and at 10 below zero, was no fun. Atlas snowshoes are still the best overall for cold weather and snow in Minnesota. They are easy to setup and adjust with gloves on and the decking material takes a lot of abuse and does not crack or stiffen.
