Healthy Milestones: Snowshoeing Fun
Snowshoeing in Mill Creek with friends and dogs – Linda, Harmons Risk Management Assistant
Get a group of friends together and hike Mill Creek Canyon. It is a beautiful canyon with lots of trails and it is dog friendly. On odd days the dogs can be off leash on the trails, which the dogs love. People are friendly and the dogs are friendly. It is so much fun to watch the dogs greet each other and play. On this particular day we did a short hike about 5 miles. We enjoy our time in the outdoors no matter what distance we hike. We try to get together a few times a month depending on weather. If you are with good company and dog friends it makes for good times. Snow Shoeing is a fun way to exercise in the winter. If you have a big dog that requires a lot of exercise it’s a good way for both of you to get exercise. Just be careful that the dogs do not step on the back of your snowshoes, it can trip you up. I bring a pack with for my little dog. When he gets tired I put him in the pack and still get in a good hike. It is also a great stress reliever!
