On Sunday, Febuary 26, I led nine people on a snowshoe around the Ancient Forest. Well, I let Nowell lead the way, which meant a lot of breaking trail.
At the beginning of the trip there was a nice hard packed trail for us to use. It was a cool but nice day to snowshoe. We had easy snowshoeing over the hard packed trails until we arrived at Big Tree.

After working hard to climb up to a bench, we explored a bit around there and made our way back to the Treebeard Waterfalls, which was hidden in the ice and snow. It was hard going down the steep areas, so I ended up bum skiing sometimes.
