The first full day of Julie's visit we decided to strap on the snowshoes and make a trek around the trail. The sun was actually out and we took advantage of it while we could. Take a look at that wall of clouds to the south. That is the lake effect snow that has been hammering the area for quite some time now. This band which dumped over 42 inches in Adams NY in 24 hours shifted up here for the whole day yesterday. We were just on the edge of it so only got about 6 inches but Adams has received over 200 inches of snow, and Watertown, closer to me 146" this winter. Today we a going to have a break, but tonight, we'll be back to it. HELLO!!Ole needs snowshoes. I had to carry Daisy Lu a little bit. Mostly to keep her from chasing the deer!This was a tough walk and believe it or not Julie never fell down...me either (for once)! The blue sky, and very old fort.Sideways snowshoeing is always a good time! Yesterday, we hunkered down and read garden books all day!
