Its January. Which is typically a bad time to get out and do much, as it is the middle of winter!! However, we are lucky enough to live in a state that celebrates winter because you're able to still get outside and enjoy the sunshine, the snow, the weather and everything else!!
Jay and I are trying to take full advantage of this by heading outside as often as possible. The first Saturday of 2016 saw us heading up to the mountains for a morning hike! We layered up, grabbed our backpacks and set off. We were up at Elk Meadows outside Evergreen. Its beautiful, but terrible to hike in the summer because its so open and unshaded. That made it perfect for a hike when the high was around 28 degrees.
