05 Feb Copper Harbor Trails Winter Wonderland
While I’m anxious for the summer months ahead, paddling Lake Superior and pedaling the Copper Harbor Trails, I’m also a winter fanatic and can’t be outside enjoying our winter wonderland enough. Last weekend my family and I set out on a snowshoe adventure on a warm sunny day and captured these awesome shots!
We started out at the base of the Copper Harbor Trails Garden Brooke trail. At first, we saw other snowshoe tracks, but they quickly disappeared as we hiked further up, up, up and into the Upper Peninsula’s Keweenaw Northwoods. We encountered turkey and coyote tracks, and it appeared the animals had been using the defined mountain bike trails as their traveling routes. The woods were quite beyond measure, with an ever-so-slight sound of snowmobiles in the distance. The smell of fresh white pine trees reminded us that spring was on its way.
The Copper Harbor Trails looked familiar from riding them in the summer but distinctly different because of the lack of vegetation and snow covering all of the well-known landmarks.
Can you perhaps make out what is where and what here? ; )
