What better place for a post-Thanksgiving snowshoe stroll than Mayflower Gulch!? This was the first time I’ve been hiking/snowshoeing while it was actually snowing. It was an awesome day.
Shortly after I left the trailhead, I glanced back and got my last peek at sunshine and blue sky for a while.
The trail follows a 4WD road through the spruce and fir forest. The 4.6-mile hike is not strenuous by any means, but the elevation (10,880 to 11,560), not to mention the scenery, is enough to render one breathless.
My destination was the group of old mine buildings from the Boston Mine near the head of the gulch.
By this time, the snow was really starting to come down and it was time to head back.
What a fabulous hike! I’m going to have to go back later in the winter when there’s even MORE snow. I’ll have more photos posted to a gallery as soon as I get through them all.
