Snow Hike | First Time This Year

Our View From Iowa

by Jim and Melanie

It snowed about a foot last weekend. The temperature dropped to -3˚F with 35 mph arctic winds by the next morning. Today, it warmed up to 25˚ with no wind. We strapped on the snowshoes and headed for the trail behind our house. Trails in town wind through the neighborhoods of town and make for great excursions all year long. Join us on this hike.

Strapped on and ready to go.

The deer had already taken this path behind our house.

Heavy snow made many of the smaller shrubs bow down gracefully.

There are actually two giant cottonwoods next to the trail.

Heading back toward our house.

Melanie thought this looked a little like a scarecrow.

That’s a nice set of buck teeth you have Jim.
