Sierra Canyon Snow Shoeing

Last Monday six of us from the Sierra Canyon Snowshoeing group tried to go to Galena Falls from Mt Rose Trail head. As you can see in the pictures there was a lot of snow.  There was also no trail to follow so we could not find Galena Falls. It was one of the hardest trips we have done because we were walking across very steep slopes which meant we all fell multiple times. My ankles were getting a work out too. In spite of the hard work it was a beautiful day. Being outside in such beautiful country is good for my soul.

If you would like to see all of my pictures form the hike you can see them on Flickr here.

 

You can just barely see the roof of the restroom building in these pictures.

When we decided to turn back we sat down on the side on the hill and had lunch first.
