The Colorado Springs forecast had Saturday at 60 degrees & sunny and Sunday as blizzarding. “Blizzards” are a funny word around here – it either means you are going to get the most snow you’ve seen in a long while or a dusting might come through. Either way, the impending snowstorm & temperature drops drove us (and the rest of the city) outside! We picked a hike near by and started our adventures. We giggled about the fact that we were wearing shorts & our Chaco sandals and I wished that I had painted my toenails 😉
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, we love that we live next door to so many beautiful hikes. It is one of our favorite ways to get some exercise & fresh air with some wonderful quality time. Our to-do lists, jobs, and commitments call for our attention all week (and often into our weekends as well) – we enjoy the time to get away, to leave phone calls unanswered, and to decompress. There is nothing like getting away from it all and into nature to help you sort things out and bring a new perspective.
If you follow me on Instagram you know that the “Blizzard” was the real deal this time and called for snow days, late starts, and more layers!
