|It was a beautiful afternoon to go snowshoeing through the swamp to the old beaver ponds, that are now just open meadows - until a family of beavers returns to rebuild the dam.|
Snowshoes and swamps go together hand in glove. What in summer is a soggy slog through tangled undergrowth and tall grass becomes an easy stroll during the winter. Not to mention the fact that there are no bugs during the winter.
Woolen bibs, otherwise known as the Minnesota tuxedo, are the most comfortable pants you can wear in the woods. Wool is real. Millions of sheep can't be wrong.
