Well, maybe not a Wonderland, but things sure do look different with a layer of white on them.

The Colorado River Trail is popular spot for walking, hiking, running, taking the dog out or even the entire family. So, Sunday morning I decided instead of complaining about the cold and the snow and the ice, let's go out and enjoy it.

For crying out loud I was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin. This is everyday, play outside weather. Yes, I did move here to the Grand Valley to get away from all of that, but while I was running, I was having some great childhood flashbacks. The scenery reminded me so much of where I grew up and I actually got a little emotional. Soon, the cold was replaced with warm memories.
