We thought we'd be heading to Florida this winter but we got discouraged by cost and complexity. Some places won't take a reservation for one month but will take one for three months. What happens if we don't like the place etc. etc.
I should have taken a few photos today so that you could show them. The snow was was up past mid-calf on the trail near where the beavers are when we went out today. I tried out my new minus 40 degree boots
I said half dozen before but, now that I'm looking, I counted an easy dozen trees brought down by the beavers.
