Beautiful Photos – Cold Hike
Well Winter definitely arrived here in New England this week. We’ve had a variety of sleet, freezing rain, and 8” of snow over the past few days. The Winter weather gives you a chance to take some gorgeous pictures of the woods – as long as you have the right gear to trek out into the cold to see all of Nature’s beauty.
Here are some photos that we have captured as we roamed the forest after the weather cleared.
Items to Take Care of Before a Major Trip
Who is going on the hike?
What’s a summary of your overall plan?
When are you going on your trip?
Where do you specifically plan to be on a day-by-day basis?
How are you going to ensure that your trip is a success?
Now that you know the things that you need to think about, take care of, and/or inform a friend/family member about before you embark on a major hike - what’s a “major trip”?
In our opinion it’s a hike that is more complicated than a couple of hours on a known trail in your local area. So if it’s an overnight trip – this list applies. If it’s a hike that is in an area new to you – this list applies. If it’s a hike in a treacherous area – this list applies. If you are hiking in adverse weather – this list applies. In short, if you have any concerns about the trip you are about to take – this list applies. Obviously, the more significant and complicated the trip is - the more detailed the information you need to give a friend or family member.
Of course, when hiking you also need to take the right gear for the trip. You can download PDFs of our recommended gear lists here:
