A Walk in the Snow

On the second day of the New Year I wanted to not only do another walk in the woods, but also do a walk in the snow.

We found plenty of it by going up Highway 215 from Rosman, NC up to just past the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stopped and walked up the Flat Laurel Creek about 2 1/2 miles or so trying to walk in the snow that other hikers that gone in before us had packed down. If we stepped out of that rut the snow was often over knee deep.

Here is one waterfall that was frozen completely over. You could still see the water flowing under the ice.
When we started hiking the temperature was 24 degrees, but as it got later into the day, the temperature started going down and it was 11 degrees when we got back to the car.
