Snowshoeing at Brainard Lake in late January

 

 

Nina is trudging along.

 

Chris & Nina stop for a quick break with Jane.

 

Chris (the photographer) is just catching up to Malin, Anders, and Nina as they're deciding which way to go.

Jane is scouting ahead to ensure the group's safety.

 

Anders is giving Jane a huge smile of appreciation.

 

Malin and Nina lag behind for some "girl talk". 

 

Anders and Malin pose for a picture, giant ear flaps and all.

 

It took about four shots to get one with Jane looking forward.

Aren't we just so outdoorsy?

Malin, Chris, and Nina force Jane to enjoy a good sit before heading back.

 

Malin is really tall! (and standing slightly uphill of Nina)

These three were ready for anything.
