Posts Tagged ‘snow’

I have been fighting this cold for over a week now. Sore throat and cough… not fun! Because of this, I have not done much as far as outdoor activities go. Then on Tuesday, winter decided to finally show up and dumped 21 inches of snow. Finally some snow!

So I spent my lunch yesterday in the woods trudging through the deep snow and following deer tracks.

I forgot how hard it is to snowshoe in super deep snow. Even with my snowshoes, my foot made a deep hole… the snow came half way up my calf.

I love snowshoeing in Powder Mills park since this one particular trail leads you along the creek. It was so peaceful and beautiful! The only sounds that I heard were my heavy breathing, the crunching sound of my snowshoes hitting the snow, birds singing, the occasional creaking of trees as the breeze gently swayed them, and a faint sound of the water flowing underneath the ice.

I was so happy to be outside! I feel as if the heavy breathing made my sickness go away. I always have reservations about doing things when I am sick… a while ago I went for a bike ride while congested and it was not pretty. But I am convinced that being outside makes everything better. I should have gone outside earlier. :)
