Snow Shoe Leadership Training
January 11, 2004
What an absolutely splendid day!
Dave Walp is an incredibly knowledgeable person.
The sky was blue, the snow a bit crusty, but not too bad, and it was an easy drive
— what more could we ask for!
Led by Dave, we trooped along Trapper Creek from the Shelter Cover Resort parking
lot, crossing over the creek twice on snow banks.
Dave did a fabulous job showing us pine marten and mink tracks and drawing other
tracks with his hand in the snow; old blazes in trees to find the route, lightening
struck trees, and explaining the various types of trees we were seeing.
He stressed how to “stay found” and discussed what to look for when
buying a new pair of snow shoes.
All of us enjoyed lingering over lunch in a beautiful snow covered meadow along
a creek. Enjoying the trip were:
Thanks Dave — we’ll do it again next year.
