Snowshoeing in the Cascades

I spent some time in Leavenworth, WA with my family over the Christmas break. About 8 miles from Leavenworth is the Chiwaukum Creek trail head that leads into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, some of the most beautiful and pristine forested country I've ever seen. When I was in Scouts growing up, I went on 2 or 3 backpacking trips in this area and those experiences left a deep impression on me. So, it was a real treat to go snowshoeing there one early morning. I only wished I would have had more time to explore. Here are a few pictures I took on the hike:
