Exploring Elbow Fork

Last Saturday was a perfect day for snowshoeing, so we went to Millcreek Canyon!  It was so beautiful!  We went up Elbow Fork Trail for a while.  The snow was so nice and fluffy!  The weather was wonderful as well – not too cold, partly cloudy, and a very light breeze!  The trees were shedding snow quite frequently and almost got the snow to land on us a few times!  It was cute.  I imagined that they were waving hello to us and then the act of them waving to us made the snow fall off of their branches.  There were birds chirping as if it were a spring day too!  There were sooo many cars in parking areas on our way to the trailhead, but we hardly saw anyone!!

We also went snowshoeing a little bit in the Provo Canyon with Alexis and Michael in January.  There wasn’t much snow though.  The small amount of snow on the ground there was extremely packed down and icy.  It was also a frigid day!  We had fun enjoying some time there anyway.

Now I want to go snowshoeing again soon!  It’s fun.
