Up Dam Mountain

This post is brought to you by the song ‘She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain’

Dam Mountain

I’m one of those people; when I start something I like, I’ll keep doing it over and over until it stops being fun.
This explains why I’ve gone snowshoeing three weekends in a row.

Merry Christmas

We hiked up to Dam Mountain last Saturday, and when we eventually reached the summit I thought “damn mountain! Quite an appropriate name”
I’ve gone snowshoeing a couple of times over the last couple of years; I never considered it a viable workout activity until recently.
It’s a pretty good cardio work out – I actually sweated this weekend, the views are incredible and I love the solitude and quiet.

Looking Down

It’s almost a spiritual experience to be that intimate with nature, surrounded by such calm and beauty.
I came back feeling refreshed and sleepy… weird, I know, the mountain air does that to me; or maybe it’s the cold.


I’m looking forward to another weekend up the mountain; maybe we’ll go a little farther this time.
It’s gotten a little warmer, and it’s raining – I hope it doesn’t warm up on the mountains, enough to rain.

I shot this video when we got to the top of the mountain, so peaceful and beautiful.
