Showshoeing ~ Mineral Belt Trail ~ Leadville Colorado


Mineral Belt Trail

Snowshoeing is

one of the

truly great

wintertime activities.

It's something a whole family can enjoy.

Even our half pint hiked for a while.

When she got tired, her dad and grandpa

took turns

carrying her.

Love those warm winter days in Colorado.  There's nothing like them.
