    Snowshoeing Franklin Falls

    We tried snowshoeing for the first time today and had a blast! I used some of my TB gear, of course, like my new Smart Alec and the even newer Upper Modular Pocket and Gate Keeper straps. The Upper Modular Pocket had a variety of items in it, like an NOAA radio, gum, camera, and sunglasses. The Gate Keeper straps held our "butt pads" for sitting in the snow. They worked great! The foam is a little challenging to put in a compact roll, and the straps held them down with no slipping at all.

    I also used my cool TB water bottle, which was stored in the side pocket of the Smart Alec. This was my first big trip with the Smart Alec and it felt really good.

    We were at Franklin Falls near Snoqualmie Pass (Washington State), and the falls were very partially frozen and very pretty.

    Looks like a great location for an intro to snowshoeing, and you aren't helping with me trying to resist getting a new SA
