Getting out in the cold....

So you say its cold out? Well, get use to it! Only 5-6 more months of this where we live! It's easy to acclimate to the household temperatures, but once you dress for the temps and get out in it, you will be suprised at how quickly you adjust. Thankfully we have all that tech-wicking stuff to keep us dry and warm - layers, good gloves, a good hat, a good neck warmer/gaiter, socks, - good to go. Worth the investment if you want to enjoy the winter wonderland!

Today my kids and I went up Hernia hill as well as many other hills and trails...they were definetly raring to go! The woods were snowy, icy, beautiful and peaceful...well, my kids were a bit of disruption to the beautiful nature noises! But once we got moving, the jackets unzipped a bit, gloves came off, and we were warm!

So, welcome to winter in Syracuse NY...I think it is finally here...enjoy it - remember those hot days when the layers could only come off so far? The bugs? I know...its easy to forget!
