|Chase having fun!|
I have a most splendid view of Wisp Resort from my office and as I look out now, I can see that they are very busy preparing the slopes for the skiers and snowboarders that will be visiting our area over the next few weeks. The natural snow fall and lower temperatures have come in handy. Combined with the snow guns, it looks to be some optimal skiing conditions! If you are not a fan of the slopes, there are still so many other activities to do in the area this time of year. One of my favorite winter activities is snow shoeing! I am, in no means, a coordinated person so I generally balk at any activity that seems to require this. When Crede Calhoun from All Earth Eco Tours invited our Taylor-Made group to come out and try a snow shoeing tour @ Swallow Falls State Park, I was not thrilled. For those that have never been to Swallow Falls, it must go on your “Must Do” list of places to visit as it houses the largest waterfall in the state of Maryland and is in general, a breathtaking place to see. This helped in my decision and luckily, I gave in. We met at the park and Crede began to give us a tutorial on how to properly strap on the shoes, handle your poles, and maneuver through the snow. As we started off, big beautiful fluffy snowflakes began to gently fall around us and for a moment, I expected to hear music swell in the background. I embellish, of course, but it truly was an amazing adventure. There is something so thrilling yet serene guiding through the forest. Crede took us to some of the back area of the forest so even if you have been there before, it’s neat to see some of the areas that most people don’t frequent. We stopped and enjoyed some yummy hot chocolate as Crede explained some facts about our natural surroundings. The best part? I didn’t fall! It truly is one of those “If I can do it, anyone can” activities! It’s so much fun and makes for a great group activity.
