90 Second Escape: Winter’s Light

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: Winter’s Light

It can be brilliant, piercing the naked forest like a laser. It can be opaque, almost ominously so. The former making you almost forget the bitter cold, the latter driving it through your bones. Winter’s fickle lighting can make the forest cozy and inviting or gray and bleak, turning a hike from an invigorating romp to a solemn walk. It’s one of the benefits of a winter excursion: you’re never quite sure what you’ll get.

On days such as this past Sunday, at Umstead State Park, you may get both. Leave your Monday behind for a 90 second walk in the winter woods.
