Bradbury Snowshoe

Jim and I met at Bradbury this morning for a snowshoe run and we confirmed that Jim's snowshoes are too big for running. They are good at breaking trail though, unlike mine which are too small for that. After 2.75 miles we returned to the cars so Jim could swap snowshoes for screw shoes, we then ran a lap of the mountain along the Boundary Trail. The trails were firm enough that snowshoes weren't necessary but I kept mine on and worked hard to keep up with Jim.

We summited Bradbury twice, not bad for a short run.
