Last week, I went on a beautiful snowshoe hike with my snowshoeing group in the Adirondacks at Garnet Hill in North River. It was particularly beautiful, as the snow was still clinging to the trees- sheer whiteness; a winter wonderland. It was on New Year’s Day- a great way to start the new year. There have been several troubling events of late, and I find that being outside particularly with like minded souls that enjoy nature helps to soothe my soul and spirit. Once again, the powdery whiteness and exercise and cool air filling my lungs did the trick. I could breathe in the beauty, and think somehow it will be okay. It was for the moment, and it will be, somehow.
