Snowshoeing to Lanham Lake

A meetup event with last minute change of plans due to crowded Stevens pass forced us to park at Nordic center and snowshoe to Lanham lake instead of the original plan of Skyline Lake. It was insanely crowded and I was surprised to see the number of cars waiting to blanket the parking lots. Even though we reached around 9:15 AM, we couldn’t find a spot at the ski resort and at the next lot too. I wasn’t expecting much due to the forecast, but the clouds were over the mountains and we had nice views. The frozen lake nestled between snow covered trees with tall mountains in the background and Sun peeping occasionally from the clouds. I wore my new Cortez down and hard shell jacket which kept me warm throughout and I cherished the bright blue color on me. The organizer had bought Green tea and shared with everyone. I played around walking on the frozen lake and pushed a bit by inching more towards the middle. It was an easy short snowshoe but still a rewarding outing.
