NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes and the Michigan Iron Industry Museum teamed up to offer a day of snowshoeing.

Girl Scout members, along with their families and the community, were able to snowshoe along the trails surrounding the museum. Each group was led by a historian who showed them around.

“The Thin Mint Snowshoe Shuffle is an opportunity for girl scouts, their families and friends, and really anyone in the community to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. And, we have snowshoes donated to us today to use by Wilderness Sports, so we're hopefully introducing some girls and families into a sport they haven't tried before,” said Leslie Bek, Event Coordinator.

Any girl scouts participating earned a patch. After their hike, they were able to go into the museum to warm up, refuel, and learn about local history.
