Ronciade Snowshoe

I wasn't sure there'd be enough snow- a couple weeks ago I rode up here and it was frost-free.  But it turns out there's plenty. I'm guessing 2 or 3 feet.  I headed up the trail from Coll Alto  and before long I was on virgin snow, no footprints or sci di fondo tracks.  By the time I reached the Trail Junction where I planned to head back on the high trail I was exhausted.  Definitely uses different muscles than road biking.  I stumbled back to the car on the same trail I'd come on, in a snowshoe-induced stupor.  Some food and a hot bath and I feel good as new.  I will return soon.
