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 or slide show 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: Southern Snowy Trail’s
For a lot of us, the weather outside is never too frightful to discourage a delightful romp. Such was the case with last week’s snow storm, which wreaked havoc during its debut, but laid the groundwork for several days of rare snowy adventure in the Piedmont of North Carolina.
Today’s 90 Second Escape begins with a trail run at Lake Johnson during the storm’s opening moments on Wednesday, to its last hurrah on Sunday, on a GetHiking! Triangle hike at Umstead State Park, before temperatures in the 60s erase the last traces of white.
