Basswood State Park – Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Report by Monica Peters - Eight hikers and one guest joined the leaders, Monica and Irv Peters, at the parking area on Basswood Road off County Highway 16 to snowshoe the park. Although the recent snowstorm had dumped about 3-4 feet of snow in the area, the leaders had snowshoed the trail on Sunday so it was fairly easy going. We went about 3 miles on the blue and yellow trails making a loop back to the cars. Observed some ducks and geese along the way. The day was sunny and beautiful and uneventful, which is about what you would hope for in March on a cold heavy snow base. All enjoyed the event and also the gorp and homemade cookies provided by our guest. PS: Fred Johnson was a late comer and took the requisite photo. Click photos twice to view maximum enlargement.
