Go outside!

A couple weeks ago, we got a snowstorm over a saturday night. We got about 4" to 6" of snow. That sunday, my friend Meg called and asked if I wanted to go for a hike. So, Tom and I ditched our snow removal effort and went along. It took us about 2 hours to make it to this view. It was sooooo worth it!

It felt so good to be outdoors and breathing in the crisp air. The light was dancing all over the trees and the silence felt good.

At the top of the trail, there was a fire tower to climb. Let me tell you, it was a little sketchy to get to the top since it was covered in ice and the wind was wild. Once you could situate yourself and hold onto the railing, the 360 degree view of the Catskills, Hudson River, and Berkshires was awe inspiring.

I love this photo. I can't beleive you got up high enough to take that...in the snow. I've done that hike on a normal day and it's not easy!

Thanks! I made myself climb up there even though I was scared. Trying to conquer personal fears...
