Snowshoeing - South Cottonwood Canyon
February 15, 2009

We spent Valentines weekend in Buena Vista and went out snowshoeing 3 days in a row. The weather was beautiful and we had the trails to ourselves!

These pictures are from our hike up to a cabin just up the hill from Cottonwood Lake.


We started by breaking our own trail through the aspens Headed towards the hill in the background
