One week ago I took my snowshoes to Jones Beach’s West End 2. I had some time to kill before work and I wanted to see how the openness of the beach would affect the drifts. In some places the snow was several feet deep and in others, the ground was bare. Seeing the beach covered in snow and ice was a wonderful change. I was able to see the tracks of little beach animals in the snow. It was a beautiful morning in the outdoors.
