Mother nature provided about 8 inches of new snow in the Equinox Preservation Trust for us this morning and four hikers showed up with snowshoes at the ready for the first snowshoe hike of this winter season. Several others were signed up to go but after waiting an extra 15 minutes for them, we decided to head out, leaving our track if anyone showed up any later.

The next two snow shoe hikes are scheduled over the holiday time – Saturday December 28 a trip in Merck Forest and January 1 a welcome in the New Year trip to Stratton Pond – details are on the calendar. Hope to see many people welcoming in the New Year with us.
