It is often a common fact that when a snowstorm hits, we stay cooped up inside, bundled under our blankets, sipping on hot tea or cocoa. However, there are a select few who decide to bare the cold, and go out to explore what the snowstorms have left for them to find.

Snowshoeing through the Gordon woods last Thursday deemed itself an excellent activity to do such exploring.
Whether we were breaking the trail or following one previously created, there was nothing that quite compared to the excitement of tromping through the snow, especially when it was with a group of people who, like you, are thrilled with the chance to breath in some crisp fresh air.
Little excursions such as this one, allowed us to experience the simple beauties; things like small rabbit tracks, little dollops of snow piled along the tree branches, or just the way in which the light glistens through the trees onto whatever is in its path. I found myself asking the question, “Am I in Narnia yet?” No, but the Gordon woods are close enough.
