Every winter we snowshoe through the middle grasslands of Lac du Bois Protected Area. We have several routes, but one of our favorites starts at the signed parking area for the Nature Trail. We prefer to do this route later in winter each year when the snow settles a bit and the tracks are well-stomped in. We have done this route many times, and in every season, so we know the options for each set of conditions. On this particular day, established tracks were in place for much of our planned route.
This is a special area for any hike or snowshoe, but on a sunny day it is one of the best loops in the whole area. We will be back in the spring to see the wildflowers and the waterfowl on the ponds and lakes.
