Snowshoeing Castle Mountain

Me, Lindsey & Christine at Castle Mountain Overlook.

No Monday Mingle for me today. I’m just too tired! Today is Family Day in Alberta so I had the day off. I went snowshoeing with my friend Christine & her roommate Lindsey (sp?). We had a blast even though it was a very hard snowshoe (at least for my out of shape self). We snowshoed up to Castle Mountain Overlook. It was a 7-8 km total trip with a 500 meter climb on the way in & a 500 meter downhill on the way back. It was a definite hard cardio workout for me. I kind of wasn’t prepared for it either as the listing for the trip said it was “Easy”. Regardless, we had a great time!

Eating lunch. We didn’t stop for long but I got sooooo cold. My fingers were like ice. You get quite hot while you are going but once you stop you get cold really quick.

My legs were pretty sore and one elbow is sore (it hurts occasionally anyway). Not terrible but I definitely knew that I did something strenuous the day before.
