Being outside in the winter is not my favorite. The layers we have to wear, the cold, and the fact that everything looks dead are such downers to me.
None of those are reasons to keep us away from the woods though. Also, I'm trying to find some silver lining to it all. It's hard, but I'm making a list: it's quiet, the grey textured bark is cool, and we've never met an adventure we don't like.
To be completely honest the real adventure was getting out the door. Once we got there we found out that the park closed in 45 minutes our balloons were deflated a little. We hurried and had as much fun as we could.
Winter hikes...doing what we have to do, and counting the days to shorts and tank tops!
