Not yet spring
Any relatively warm weekend in February is cause for celebration. I took a walk on a paved path last Friday after work and it felt so great to be outside that I decided to hike at McFarland Park on Saturday. The hiking trails out there are still mostly snow-covered; some sections are icy, and others are muddy. Not just a little mud, either – like, boot-sucking mud. So it is definitely NOT spring in central Iowa, but oh, what fun it is to imagine these trails surrounded by spring flowers and little green leaves!
