Winter Walk: Stonybrook Park

I know I have written about Stonybrook before, since it is our closest gorge park. For more see posts: Here Comes the Sun!: Stony Brook Park and Kira’s first outing.

This winter we were able to share this wonderful place with my parents. While my parents were here we had settled in, caught up,  eaten many yummy cookies and great meals, and we were ready to walk some of it off. So we took my parents to Stonybrook.

Because of our mild December, we were able to enjoy a winter walk without any rain or snow and mild weather walking down the gorge trail.

We also had the chance to try out one of Kira’s Christmas presents: a fleece camo vest my mom made her for the winter and hunting months.

Again we did not make it through the whole trail (still a goal of mine) but we made it further down the path then we had before and boy was it worth it!

In spite of the dry day we had enough rain and snow recently to still have beautiful falls to discover.

It was the perfect winter walk and picture spot. Afterwards we came home and enjoyed hot coco by the lit fireplace.

What type of outdoor winter activities do you enjoy?
