Hiking

Snowy Trek

Today I seriously bundled up and ventured out in the woods for an hour of hiking.  Two pairs of socks, two pairs of gloves, two hats, two pairs of sweat pants, a wool sweater, sweatshirt and regular top along with a hooded coat was my attire – Michelin woman.  It was somewhere around fifteen degrees.  It’s hardly climbing Mount Everest, but for me it was a small victory just braving the outdoors in such cold weather and staying warm.  I did stay surprisingly warm – not toasty, but warm.  I’m not a cold weather person at all.  I’m thankful for the calories burned and for the commune with nature.

More snow, possibly ice, is predicted to begin tonight.  Maybe I will do the Jeremiah Johnson trek again tomorrow.
