A snowshoe flip flop before the thaw

The first snow of winter over the Belgian Ardennes appeared last week. Today everything is melting away again. Luckily I found the time to make a dayhike on the Hautes Fagnes before the thaw set in, snowshoeing on the plateau and hiking on trailrunners on the snow in the Rur valley where the snow was only a thin cover. Beside a lot of people seem to have visited the area last weekend, I was breaking my own trail on virgin like snow deeper on the plateau. No single other hiker crossed my path. So I like it best.
