Just a quick snowshoe and scramble up to the false summit of Lake Peak near Santa Fe, NM. Lot's of "Christmas snowshoers" on the trail this weekend. A couple more weeks and they'll all realize that this sport sucks, haha, and they'll go back to their warm cottages until the snow melts. It was a little slow going. About 3:45 up and 1:30 down with a 60lb pack.
