Winter is in full swing here in Michigan. We got pummeled yesterday and the outcome is beautiful. We finally have good X-C skiable snow in southwest Michigan. But, as much as I enjoy traipsing around on snowy trails wearing trail crampons, or heading into the woods on skis or snowshoes, this scene from Joshua Tree National Park hit a nerve this morning. I find myself longing for warm, wide-open spaces.
To all of you who inhabit cold or warm places, enjoy your weekend outdoors. –HM
