Do you hike during the winter? I know winter is a frustrating time for me because I stay off the trails and I miss being out in nature. I am not a fan of the cold so hiking would not be as fun for me if I did it in the cold. Also the snow on the trails makes me nervous that I would make a wrong turn.
The Washington Trail Association has written an informative article on how to stay safe hiking in the winter. If you are brave enough to tackle the cold, check out this great article here.
For those of you like me, how do you combat the frustration of taking the winter months off from hiking? For me, I plan to hike in other locations that have warmer climates. My "Hike 12 in 2012" challenge will bring me to California, Hawaii, Barcelona, and many other locations so that I can get my hike on without freezing my buns off.
