Everyone should go snowshoeing at some point in their life, there is no experience quite like it. It’s also the closest I have ever come to walking on water, except for the time I went ice fishing. Snowshoes work by distributing your weight over a larger surface area, thus allowing you to safely hike across areas that have experience deep snowfalls. I bring my snowshoes with me everywhere I go, just in case there is sudden climatic shift (we’re overdue for one).
Snowshoeing is a great way for hikers and runners to stay active in the wintertime. Snowshoes are also ideal for tricking people into thinking that there is an abominable snowman on the loose, or maybe just a gigantic snowshoe hare. I miss my gigantic snowshoe hare, it was even more fun to ride him than it is to go snowshoeing, which is still pretty fun.
Snowshoes have been around for thousands of years but the advances in technology that go into making them today makes me believe that one day snowshoe technology will be so advanced that man will be able to snowshoe across the surface of Uranus.
So the moral of the story is that you don’t have giant snowshoe hare so you should probably get yourself a pair of snowshoes for going on awesome winter adventures. If you come across my gigantic hare in your journeys don’t worry he is friendly and responds to “Duchess”. Try to lure him back to me using carrots. He loves carrots.
