Anticipating a large family dinner with all the trimmings and a house full of kids, we choose a hike to prepare. A small amount of snow scattered the ground and we packed up the kids and Grandma and hit the trail. The trails were fairly easy to follow and nice loops to explore. The woods lived up to Robert Frost poetry and the fresh air was therapeutic.
We needed our boots and mitts, and could have used walking sticks. The kids ran on ahead and enjoyed wandering off the paths. We used an hour, just enough time to burn off the extra helping of potatoes and we could have easily stayed for 3 hours.
This is a definite come back and explore. Next time a lunch and walking stick.
