Hike in the middle of winter..awesome experienice

Sometimes the simplest things bring the greatest joy! Anyone who enjoys hikes and being outdoors knows what I am talking about!
Today I was invited on a 3-4 mile hike at a nearby preservation area. I knew the hike leaders quite well (very nice couple!) and the place wasn’t too far from me (I still managed to get a speeding ticket because I was lost getting there and was afraid they would leave on the hike without me!)..so I decided to go.

I am glad I went. Although the place was covered with snow, my hiking boots had bad laces and I got lost getting there, it was so worth it..to be outside, see beauty just in our neighborhood, learn about new plants, birds and so many other things (including how deer poop looks like!)..I took quite a few pictures on my phone..so take a look and I hope you feel inspired enough to plan on doing some hiking in your own neighborhood..Do share back here on your experiences.

    I hike around my neightborhood and found a trail because I saw cars parked in the same place all the time next to woods, not near any homes or stores, so I started down and found it to be a wonderful hike. I found a website which has some information about it: http://www.getupngoadventures.com/html/nashawtuc_road.html.
    It is called Squaw Sachem Trail.
