Winter is always a bit of an odd season for me. I personally love the winter, love getting outside and enjoying the purity and stillness that nature gives us. In any other season, sitting outside in nature gives you an immediate and overwhelming awareness of life surrounding you. In the winter, when most everything is slumbering beneath a blanket of snow, you can truly get a sense of solitude and calmness. In the winter, everything is undiscovered, trails newly untrodden, and there are things to discover everywhere. For a nature nut, winter is wonderful for all of the ways that it isn’t what you’d normally expect.
