Wilderness Walk: Warm Thoughts Edition

Jed Jacobsohn

If you close your eyes real tight, you can start to hear the ocean and feel the sand between your toes.

It's cold Wilderness. Make sure you cover up out there today, and it's probably a wise plan to keep the animals indoors today. My husky however, is loving this weather. She's an indoor beast, but she can't get enough of this weather.

Stay safe today folks, don't go out if you don't have to. Whatever it is can probably wait till tomorrow or Wednesday.
