12 Hours // Snowshoeing Mount Rainier

For Christmas my parents surprised us with our own snowshoes so Justin and I couldn’t wait to head to the mountains this past Sunday to cross #9 off my January resolution list.

  1. Looks amazing – like two of my loves combined (I’m originally from MN where there are no Mountains, and I currently live in NZ but snow shoeing isn’t very popular here as there really isn’t enough snow)! Love that you had a photo of the tire chains as well – LOL!

    • I live in Dunedin in the South Island – LOL not the most glamorous of NZ’s cities, but it suits me just fine. It is an amazing country to live in and I’ve been really lucky to live here for so long (7 years in Feb)!

      It is SOooo beautiful here. I do a lot of tramping (hiking), so I feel very spoilt in the fact that I’ve seen some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the country!
