Maine has not been getting much snow lately, which stinks for snowshoeing, skiing and riding. Where we used to have snow on trails, now we have packed snow and ice pockets. If you have some form of ice cleat, you can still get out and enjoy yourself.

I took my old pair of HT Enterprises Sure Grip Safety Treads to East Point Sanctuary near Biddeford Pool. This kind of ice cleat is a stretchy, flat-packing rubber tread that you wear over your shoes. You can wear them with boots or shoes. (I also use them for Fly Fishing. They help with slippery rocks and walking on muddy shore lines.) I have had these treads for nearly 10 years.

It was overcast and blustery with a some spitting snow flying around but with the right clothes and some traction, I was able to have a great time and take some photographs.

I also tried out a new app for my iPhone: EveryTrail. This app allows you to track your hike or trip and take photos along the way. Then you can upload it to share online. Here is the link to my EveryTrail track from East Point Sanctuary.
