Too Cold To Hike

The optimal winter hiking temperature is from 20-30 degrees fahrenheit. Last week we were in the midst of a polar blast sent by way of Canada. Thanks Canada. Seriously though, as much as this is normal, when the wind chill can cause hypothermia in a matter of minutes, it leaves us with little time outContinue reading “Too Cold To Hike”
