snowshoeing

Went out on my first snowshoe of the season (11/5) bringing a first timer with me and Silver Dollar Lake Trail did not disappoint. Saw 8 moose through the trek!!! Only saw one other group of snowshoers on our way up and they turned back near Naylor Lake due to slopes of snow that were 4-5 feet deep and at a challenging decline. It can be a bit difficult to navigate the trail once you leave treeline but if understand where the lake you are heading to is, it can be a lot of fun to make your own trail there.
Just an FYI: Started with a gorgeous day and by the time we made it to the lake the wind and snow picked up and we were losing visibility quickly. Bring polarized goggles or you will completely lose your path back.
