How to live through the Polar Vortex of 2014 in the Midwest?
Bookend it with Winter hiking.
Last week's walk was such goodness (at Burr Oak Woods), that we tried it again today (at the Overland Park Arboretum). A group of four or five White-Tailed Deer were spotted through thick trees, just 20 yards away, and we even saw a waddling Possum that I would describe as cute but just because he was moving away from us and not towards us (menacing creatures, those Possums!). A three mile walk is awesome medicine to take on the weekend and prepare for the week.
the most ancient exercise
and still the best modern exercise.
