Now that we have snow the Sierra Canyon Hiking Group goes snow shoeing every Monday. The people in the group range in age from the early 50s to 70+. We have a lot of fun. Yesterday, New Year’s Eve 2007, we snow shoed to Andesite Peak. The trail head is just north of Interstate 80 at the Castle Peak exit (176). It was a Calendar picture kind of day. The snow was sticking to the trees and each person kept commenting on how gorgeous it was.
On our lunch break near the top we opened a bottle of champagne and toasted the new year. Thanks Jeff and Linda! That is me in front. We were sheltered and in the sun so it was very pleasant.
Here we are on top. The wind was blowing but as you can see the views were stupendous.
On our way down.
