jellybellynelly :  if I got into a hot tub in December I’d be wearing a fur lined wet suit and wouldn’t get out until April.

ashleyroo :  you can hike in any weather. Though I do really enjoy hiking in light snow, deep snow hikes (without snowshoes) are only for when my husband really really wants to go with me along. (I do not like hiking in snow above my ankle) 

But with the proper layers and shoes the movement keeps you warm and it’s lovely. Very minimal investment and good excercise! (with or without snow) 

And skating! Ice skating is a fun activity too 🙂

You can hike in the winter. If there isn’t enough snow to snowshoe, just wear insulated boots. Take some Yaktraks just in case there is some ice along the trail.

I’m originally from Texas so I by no means grew up with snow or cold, but hiking in winter is no big deal. Just dress for it and you will be plenty warm! Get your base layers and mid layers on you won’t have any problems!

If your dog is having a problem, look at getting him some shoes. Or just don’t take him. The important thing is for you to get outside!

My husband and I love hiking andsnowshoeing. We like winter camping but we’re still working on mastering it.
