Winter drives us all inside. This final season clearly demonstrates why it is necessary for people to live indoors. As much as I miss my tent, feeling the sun say good morning and hearing birds instead of alarms, I must come to terms with the harshness of this season. The hostile cold is here. No matter what beauty resides within this time of year, it is harsh.
I moved to Minnesota about two weeks ago. Tonight the temperature outside is -4 degrees. I’ve been experimenting with short winter day hikes and indoor climbing gyms.
