Wow, we have had a normal, typical, actual wintery December this year. Last Christmas, we were hiking in 60 degree temperatures, without a drop of snow visible, and it was December 29th before I got out on my Tubbs snowshoes.
December 2016 has been a pretty hectic month; lots of winter hiking and snowshoeing, some wild weather ( normal for Vermont!), a trip to New York City for this Country Mouse, family coming in for the holidays, new stuff from LL Bean and LuminAid to test out and review, another nice contest win from trailspace.com, phewwww, ready for a little break!
We are heading out in a few days to celebrate the New Year at the off-grid GMC cabins in the Northeast Kingdom. It looks like we will have plenty of snow for snowshoeing, and the temperatures are not going to be brutally cold. So here is a toast to the New Year…one which will undoubtedly bring new challenges and adventures. 2017, here we come!
And now, a brief video of our snowshoeing in December…so excited to actually be able to get some snowy photos this year!
