This year is proving to be a true winter of winters here. While it has been snowy, but not particularly snowy it has been bitterly cold for what feels like forever. It’s been so cold I was walking to get my kids from school last week and thought to myself, “Wow. It’s pretty warm out here.” It was 9F.
There is only so much hiding in the warm house that one family can do, however. So yesterday we put on our two pairs of long underwear, boots, and wooly handknits and headed out for an adventure. One of the most scenic parks in the area, Devil’s Lake State Park is almost always as crowded as its views are unique for us here is the Great Lakes region. A perk of hiking when the temps are around 10F is that you pretty much get the park to yourself.
Was it worth braving the cold?
Most importantly though were these faces…
I gracefully demonstrated the art of the ‘glissade’…
Was it worth it? Let me ask you this?
Yes. It was worth it.
