Snowshoeing under the stars

Sunday March 15th proved to be a fantastic day for snowshoeing or more accurately, it was a great night for snowshoeing. It was warm and the winds were low, especially since we were snowshoeing late in the evening. Six members of the Saskatoon Snowshoe Club met at the Holiday Park golf course parking lot and headed out into the night. The evening started out clear with only a few clouds but as the evening wore on the cloud cover rolled in. It was a lot of fun trying to find our way in the dark, being sure to stay off of the ski trails. We saw deer tracks and evidence of their feeding, we followed porcupine trails and saw where they had fed on tree bark. Every one had a good time and I'm pretty sure we'll do it again next year.
