Gambrill State Park - a couple of hours of snowshoeing

Last Sunday, a friend and I went snowshoeing in Gambrill State Park, near Frederick, MD. After the long day on Little Devils Staircase the day before, we wanted to go somewhere close.  It was a nice warm day and it promised to be the last good snow day, at least for a little while,since we were forecast to get rain on Monday. In spite of the good weather, we only saw one other snowshoer and a couple of snowboarders.

Some photos:

Windblown drifts of snow, hardened by melting and re-freezing.
Ripple marks in the snowdrifts from the wind.
