Snowshoeing Echo Lake

While in Colorado I went snowshoeing for the first time.  I ended up going to Echo Lake for my snowshoeing adventure.  I wasn't sure what to expect and figured it would be like hiking.  It was just like hiking except way more challenging.  I chose Echo Lake the site I was looking at said it was a beginner trail and instead of the there being one trail at x amount of miles it was supposed to be open roaming.  It was cold that day and the wind was blowing, which ended being really cool to see the snow fly of the trees looking like fast moving fog through the wilderness and off of the surrounding peaks.  Snowshoeing was a lot harder than I imagined it to be and is a great way to get some exercise.  I'd recommend it to anyone.
