I promised myself that I would do something different Wednesday evening than riding the trainer again. We just got 4 or 5 inches of snow but I had no chance to partake in the white stuff before work so I had to settle on something afterwards. The snow is the right consistency to ride but I didn't get home from work early enough for that. Instead, I headed out for a little night snowshoe at Upper Paugussett.
I went up the connector from Pond Brook and then went up the Blue Trail and I never realized how steep some parts of the trail are through there, one section has a 32% grade! Fortunately, the snowshoes I have have great crampons so I got up that section easily. I got the Gussy and headed back towards the Brody Road where I then headed down the Mulikin. I got a great workout in 60 minutes and got to use my snowshoes again.
