I hiked on mostly snow, into the woods on the Peaks Trail in Breckenridge. you really have to stay on the high spot, on the snowy trail - that's the place that's been packed down by snowshoers, cross-country skiers and hikers over the winter and spring. Sometimes, if you get off the trail, you can post-hole knee deep. I luckily didn't sink in and walked a total of four miles, there and back again. The pano is shot with an iPhone app, Photosynth by Microsoft. It's the only app sofar that I've found that will shoot and stitch a spherical panorama.
