View of the frozen lake. The tracks visible are from the ice fisherman's snowmobiles.

Yes, those are ski poles next to me. They kept me from falling over while shoeing.

This is where we started and ended our snowshoe outing. And just to make the sign happy, I'll do it again soon.
A pack of baby Christmas trees appears out of the snow.
They were everywhere!
Parents are never too far away from the babies - even with trees.
Here's the knife I bought and kept hidden in my jacket. Not too impressive or intimidating but it did make me feel better.
This photo gives you some perspective on the knife's actual size.
A funny side story about this knife: when I picked it out at Mountains Market, I couldn't figure out how to close it so I had to carry it to the register open, like in the pic. In one hand I carried a diet coke to buy and in the other, an open knife. It felt very bizarre and the look I got from the cashier was bizarre, too.
I think I'll try to keep that 10% hidden as often as possible.
