A Snowshoeing We Shall Go!


Sharing the trail with ??? on my long hike in The Gould Lake Conservation Area
 
Crossing over a babbling brook

A view from a snowy perch

 
A Snowshoeing We Shall Go

(Sing to the tune of “A Hunting We Shall Go) -EJ Murphy
 

A snowshoeing we shall go, a snowshoeing we shall go,
Over hill and dale, on lake and trail,
A snowshoeing we shall go!

Our Dions we shall wear, they’re good to get us there,
They’re light and small and fun for all,
Our Dions we shall wear!

Trekking poles we shall bring, we’ll plant them as we sing,
They’ve got a spike to help us hike,
Trekking poles we shall bring!

In layers we shall dress, we know we can’t wear less,
From our head to our toes to the tip of our nose,
In layers we shall dress!

We shan't forget our feast, not last nor is it least,
Soup and crackers, cliff bars in wrappers,
We shan't forget our feast!

One last thing we shall tow, then we’ll be set to go,
A bottle of water for when we’re hotter,
One last thing we shall tow,
 
A bladder of wine to pass the time,
One last thing we shall tow,
 
A flask of rum to warm our tum,
One last thing we shall tow,
 
A pint of beer to bring some cheer,
One last thing we shall tow,
 
A hot cocoa and a cup of Joe,
Then a snowshoeing we shall go!!

A snowshoeing we shall go, a snowshoeing we shall go,
Over hill and dale, on lake and trail,
A snowshoeing we shall go!

I am really lucky to have Gould Lake practically in my backyard. I think this is the first time I have taken pictures during an actual planned "workout". I must say it really slowed me down fumbling with my mitts and camera and trying to get a decent shot.

Hi EJ,
Congrats on your Cat Trail end to end! That is amazing, I hope you write a report about it. Incredible, especially in winter.
