Details

Join us for a post-Thanksgiving calorie burning snowshoe up to scenic Chasm Lake.  The Longs Peak TH and Hwy 36 will be open, so it will be a reasonable drive.  This is a wonderful snowshoe in early winter, with views on a clear day of the mountains in Rocky as well as out onto the Front Range.  Mileage is about 8 to 9, with enough elevation gain to know you did a workout.  To help out with Lyons and Estes Park's flood-damaged economies, we will likely plan a short coffee/breakfast stop in Lyons on the way up if possible, and a meal (early dinner most likely) in Estes.  Depending on participants, part of the group may elect to do a bit of the tourism in Estes after as well.  Register with leader via email.

UPDATE: Hwy 34 will also be open at this time, so we will assess what participants wish to do in terms of route to TH, so exact scheduling before/after the snowshoe will be decided among participants and probably organized by vehicle.
