If you’re anything like me, it can be awfully hard to motivate yourself to go exploring when it’s frigid outside. Even though you know you’ll enjoy it! WebMD’s Facebook post was a good reminder that I should be running around in the fresh air. So naturally, instead of actually taking off on a hike, I rounded up some more outdoorsy inspiration! (Hey, it’s really cold. At least I’m working out my fingers?)
Boy scouts from 1958, via Forest History Society on Flickr. Vintage is very chic
these days always, and so is good ol’-fashioned exercise.
John N Maclean captioned this, “Hiking in the horizontal sunshine in Alaska with the Chugach Mountains in the background — the temperature rose above zero today for the first time in several days!” Okay, maybe I should stop whining about the cold, since I live in California and the temperature here is much more reasonable. . .
Michelle Vosper has a sassy husband, which is pretty excellent if you ask me.
This picture by rojita9 on Flickr is my favorite! Here’s the context: “I don’t have a pair of snowboots. So I wear this old pair of Bruce’s that he had as a Scout. There are too big, even though I wear 2 pairs of socks with them! but they do the job & keep my feet dry. He was a Boy Scout so long ago, it makes me wonder why he kept them all this time… was he keeping them for me?” Her husband replied, “You are wearing history and adventure honey. Those boots have hiked the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Crater Lake and Yellowstone. Not to mention many, many miles of The Appalachian Trail. If you look close, you can see the rust on the ‘D’ rings the laces run through. These boots must be at least 35 years old…and yep, you’re right…they still keep your feet dry. ;)”
