Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Moonlight Snow-shoeing to Elephant's back

snow-shoeing elephant's back

Quite tricky to take pictures of moonlight snowshoeing. This photo makes it seem quite dark but in reality we could see fine. The snow-shoes were brilliant, very easy to attach and walk in. We walked for about 3 hours and it was enough exertion to stay warm without being too difficult. Quite an awesome way to see distant views of Nevada and California. Panoramic snow-covered moonlit scenes of mountains, lakes and trees and the distant lights of various snow machinery grooming the ski slopes of Kirkwood. Closer by, the snow glittered very strangely and quite a few animal tracks were to be seen (rabbits and deer I think).

Dre and Jason camped out, Very impressive and they were very matter of fact about it too. Perhaps I'll give that a go one day too.

Another cool trip run by Bently Adventures.
