Winter Hiking in Connecticut

This past weekend was a first for me: hiking by headlamp in a snow squall! We hiked from Rt. 41 in Connecticut, north, to Bear Mountain (the highest point in the state – 2,323 feet in elevation). The temps were in the 20s/30s but thankfully I stayed nice and toasty with all of the layers that we brought. Laughing out loud 

We had such a fun time hiking more of the Appalachian Trail; hopefully we can make this a regular occurrence throughout the year. Smile

Hiking in the snow was so incredibly beautiful. I never thought I would love hiking as much as I do. And to be doing it in the freezing temps, while it’s snowing? Surprised smile Can’t wait for the next adventure!
