It was a very cold (zero degrees) but beautiful Saturday morning when fourteen of us set off on a snowshoe on the connector trail between Worcester and Calais. There was no wind and the sun was shining offering gorgeous views of the entire Worcester Range. People came from Barre, Montpelier, Northfield and Williamstown to join in this lovely hike uphill from Worcester to Calais and downhill again back to Worcester. It was a short, about 2 1/2 hours, hike through the soft snow that had fallen during the previous week. Warm and hungry hikers finished just as new snow began to fall and the temp. reached 20 degrees.
