I was excited when I finished work as it was snowing, however it stopped soon and there is now new snow this morning.
I took my snowshoes yesterday and walked an hour in the forest without snowboard. I enjoyed walking with sunshine between white birch trees, birds were singing and I saw a cute squirrel, too! There are many company which can take you to the snowshoeing tour. It’s so fun and good exercise when you are not riding.
I should accept that the spring has came now.
