Nels Magelssen, left, and his wife Evelyn Zeller, of Bellevue, lead the pack as they try snowshoeing for the first time at Snoqualmie Pass Sunday. The couple are avid hikers, but since it's more difficult to hike in the winter, they decided to try out snowshoeing. The Forest Service offers free guided snowshoe hikes at Snoqualmie Pass on weekends starting Sunday through mid-March. Rangers with the United States Forest Service take anyone interested on a 90-minute loop, which is about a mile long, and snowshoes are provided. The hikes depart from the ranger station at Snoqualmie Pass at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
