A nice little snowshoe on the way to Kent's Court with occasional snow.
There was too much snow on the road to the trailhead, so we parked by the freeway. I put on snowshoes at the car and we made our way up to the McClellan Butte trailhead.
The trail looked packed down and I probably could have gotten by without them on the lower portions of the trail. However, the snowshoes did allow me to take the power line shortcut on the way up.
At the second road crossing, which is nf-9020, we turned left towards Kent's Court. No sign that anyone had traveled in this direction and even with snowshoes I was sinking into the snow about 8" with every step. Blue was up past his belly. It didn't take long for the boys to figure out it was best to follow in my foot steps.
Blue was becoming covered in snow balls that seemed to reform instantly after I would break them up. We turned around where nf-9020 crosses Alice Creek.

Blue loves to sniff for critters in the snow.
The turn off for the trailhead.
