How to #OptOutside When It’s Cold

Hiking and camping

You want to #OptOutside, but it’s cold, what to do?  Just because the weather has turned cold and the days are dark, doesn’t mean that you need to hide inside by the fire.  Winter is a great time to #OptOutside.  With leaves off the trees, vistas expand beyond your summer viewshed.  Colder temperatures generally mean that many creatures hide, so fewer bears, snakes and bugs can make the outdoors less frightening for the skittish.  And best of all, everyone else is curled up inside, so you can have the trail to yourself!
