Went out with my girlfriend, cousin and friend for a short snowshoe. We ended up spending a few hours right at about 10,000 feet.
Here's a couple photos. First one is my girlfriend on one of the slight climbs through the trees. SNow looks pretty packed but if you took off your shoes like my cousin did you sink to your hips.


Here's one of me at a little over 10k


As some of you know once you start going over 10 things start to change. Going hard for a few hours at that altitude is a good workout

Up near Brainard Lake? Indian Peaks Wilderness in the background?

Looks like a sweet time and a good heart pounding workout. Epic calorie burn above 10,000 feet!

+1 for snowshoeing. One of my fav parts of back country snowboarding out West! RayDog - we'll have to link-up when I roll to WY this winter. Looks awesome!

That looks a lot like where I cut my Christmas tree, lol. That altitude is killer!
