Maxwell Shelter Snowshoe

March 1, 2003

. . . And the weather gods smiled. Brilliant sunshine, blue skies, and a few inches of new powder made for what-more-can-you-ask-for snowshoe conditions. Bring along navigator-with-GPS John and can’t-stay-on-a-trail Jim and six other willing spirits to be guaranteed a fun, off-trail adventure to the top where we were rewarded with stunning views of two of the Sisters, Washington, Three Fingered Jack and many other smaller mountains and buttes. Throw in a cozy, fully enclosed shelter with real windows, a leisurely lunch stop, then a quick jaunt to the cars, and it all adds up to a TERRIFIC, FUN trip. Thanks to all the great participants, Non-member Iwo Lojasiewicz and members John Agnew, Ann-Marie Askew, Bob Huntley, Joe Neal, Jim Whitfield, Mel Zavodsky and Effie Neth (leader/sweep).
