Is it Spring? With temps in the 50's this weekend you may think winter is over but we all know Minnesota is tricky. We still might end up with a winter storm in a few weeks. We can never predict how much snow we will get but we always have to be able to change and adapt to what we receive. We need to continue to keep active and embrace what we have. Show your love to the outdoors and get outside.
This week we had a snowshoe planned for tomorrow and we have changed it to a hike along the Minnehaha. Please join if you can as we explore the waterway and enjoy the beautiful evening. We will meet at 6pm at Lynhurst Park in Minneapolis.
Last Tuesday we meet for an icy and chilly walk around Centennial Lakes. We made it through the wind and walked 3 miles with our poles. I am hopeful the walk in March will bring a peaceful winter evening with no wind or ice. 
Happy Valentine's Day!
A chilly and fun evening
