Road trip with Friends to Winter Park
My friends, Brian and Erin, kindly shared their condo in Winter Park with me this weekend. I felt so fortunate to be able to head to the mountains Friday afternoon and miss the Saturday morning ski traffic. What a luxury they afforded me! On top of including me in their weekly winter trek to the mountains, as I don’t ski, they graciously joined me in snow shoeing on one of the biggest powder days of the lackluster snow season.
Saturday morning we geared up, stepped out of the condo, and wondered what in the heck we were doing. Wind whipped tiny flecks of snow into our faces as we shoved our packs and shoes into the trunk of their convertible Audi complete with snow tires! Brian drove us 45 minutes to the outskirts of Rocky Mountain National Park where we found the trailhead to Shadow Mountain Shore.
