Backcountry snowshoeing

Today we went snowshoeing on Rabbit Ears pass. Here's the track:

Note that we went out and back on the same course.

This is a marked trail that starts at the East Summit car park. But as you can see from the completely untracked snow, it hasn't had a lot of recent use.

It's quite a treat having views like this all to yourself:

This was quite a bit easier than some of the tours we've been doing on the mountain. Whilst the distance we covered at 2.56 miles is similar, the total vertical climb of 516 ft is quite a bit less (like 1,603 ft on the last one).
