While my husband and daughter were snowboarding (a 16th birthday gift we were finally able to fulfill since the shutdowns by the government), my three youngest and I decided to take a nice hike in the snow.
We found a small trail near our condo — not the one I had originally planned to hike, one I had run a couple years ago in training for a half marathon — but it was serendipity that we turned the wrong way. The trail we did find followed a small river, and it was obvious by the tracks that it’s popular with cross country skiers. I didn’t have my running watch with me, and it didn’t occur to me until about a mile into the walk I could start the Mapmyrun app for the mapping and distance. We logged 2.83 miles.
It turns out we were on Snake River, and it was such a beautiful walk. In some areas, the snow was knee deep, but on the main trail it was pretty easy to walk on top of the snow.
Be sure to explore the great outdoors, even in the snow!
