Thank you, Santa!

Well, Santa pulled through with the snowshoes, and I gave them a test drive on Christmas day. The nice thing about snowshoes is the fact that they open up huge new tracts of the forest to hiking. And they let you enjoy established trails right after a big snow, before the path gets trampled down with other hikers:

It’s a great excuse to get out and indulge in the winter sunshine after a storm:

So if you’re planning a visit to Santa Fe in the winter, think about bringing along a few extra layers and heading up the mountain with rented snowshoes. You’ll enjoy a whole new dimension of our winter world.
