Santiam sledding amd off the beaten path snowshoeing

It was a perfect day for a spring snow adventure- early March with plenty of powder and sunshine.

We headed up Santiam Pass to the Santiam Sno Park.  We first went down the very steep sledding hill.

Baby Analise cheered us on from the bottom of the hill!

When we had our turns on the sledding hill we headed up toward the Pacific Crest trail. 

We had an incredible view of Mt. Jefferson.

This was the first time this season that Amy did not have a groomed trail.  She skied pretty far through our snowshoe prints and then started hiking.

We followed some tracks and headed up to a clearing.

 Baby Analise stayed warm and cozy on mama.

We could see Three Fingered Jack in the distance.

We enjoyed being up on the butte for a little while and took in the view then headed back down to easier showshoeing.

Baby Analise got a little bit of a wiggle break but was not sure she liked the snow too much.

We enjoyed our trek out and had a wonderful day together.

This is snowshoeing at its finest- sun, powdery snow, a sledding hill, and happy children!
