Bill, Trail Walking Ambassador
Why do I love snowshoeing? Because it lets me enjoy all the trails here in Summit County, high in the Colorado Rockies. My wife and I are avid trail runners and walkers, and snowshoes let us spend nearly as much time on the trails in the winter as we do in the summer. Living at 9000 feet, at the edge of the Eagles Nest Wilderness Area, we can count on snow at least 6 months of the year, so snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Another of my passions is photography, primarily landscapes and wildlife, and again, seeing all the animals in their natural environment, year round, makes this a special place to be. Since not everyone is lucky enough to be able to live here, I thought I would share a few wildlife photos I have taken over the past year, some summer, some winter, all here in Summit County, all within 20 miles of my home. Enjoy!
You will all recognize our largest wildlife, Moose. I took this shot less than ¼ mile from my house.
