I'd been planning to get out earlier this winter, but for one reason or another, and another, it just hadn't been working out for us. When the upcoming forecast was again showing an incoming winter storm on my days off in mid-February, I was tired of waiting and decided to just go anyway.
So Jamie and I packed our gear, knowing we would likely have some wind and snow. I can't say I was looking forward to the possibility of wind, but I was actually hoping for some fresh snowfall. We embraced the weather and had some winter camping fun!
We packed up camp and went for a hike before heading back home.
And the fresh snowfall I had been hoping to get made our whole experience extra awesome -- despite being quite soggy by the time we headed for home. :)
On this camp trip, I decided to make a goal to get in at least one camping or backpack trip per month. We had a blast on our mini-backpack adventure in March, and I'm still making plans for this month, so keep your eye out for more to come. :)
