When it's warm enough--which hasn't been often, as temperatures have been zero or below the past couple of weeks--we'll go on a snow shoe hike. This gives me a good break from living in my head and allows me to ground in my body and to experience this beautiful, snow-covered landscape. Then, we'll come back and I'll cook lunch before heading back to my work. We had the chance one Saturday to go to a guided snow shoe hike with a naturalist from the Cable Natural History Museum, Emily Stone. She helped us identify tracks and pointed out different fungi on trees. It was about zero degrees that day, so we tried to keep up a nice pace so we would keep warm enough.
The good news is that everyone here is complaining about the early winter and the cold, so we don't feel like wimps staying in.

But the work paid off, and we had a great time at the Museum, with a small but eager audience of four children and six adults. The performance closed with us all going to a back table to make salt dough.
