There is full moon on January 17th so I figure on the Saturday night before (January 15th) it will be a perfect opportunity for another moonlight snowshoe.  I've led similar trips in the past and they are always a lot of fun.  According to Google, the first full moon of the year is called the "Wolf Moon" so make sure you are prepared to howl at the moon.

Our intended destination will be decided upon at a later date when I know what the snow conditions will be like but it will be no more than an "Easy" snowshoe (probably less than 3 miles with very little elevation gain).

After the snowshoe we will stop in Estes Park for dinner at a local Italian restaurant..  For those participants from the Denver area I would expect you would be back to the Park-n-Ride between 10 and 10:30 PM.

COVID:  Since our plan will be to stop for dinner after the snowshoe and it will be difficult to maintain social distancing, I would ask that you sign up for this trip only if you are FULLY VACCINATED.

Feel free to contact the trip leader with any questions.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
